    We arrived well after the 3pm tour and they were very gracious to still give us a tour, keeping them after closing hours. We couldn't have been more excited, the house and grounds were beautiful and t...  more »

    The tour of the grounds is guided. The docent was very knowledgeable. It can be quite warm in the carriage museum. You can walk through the rooms, which I prefer over viewing from behind a rope. If yo...  more »

    Granger Homstead and Carriage Museum has long been known as the former home of Gideon Granger, the first Post Master General of the United States, but many do not know of the exclusive carriage collection that is also a part of the homestead. It is an incredible collection of horse-drawn carriages (nearly 70 different types), everything from medical and commercial wagons, to surreys ( yes with the fringe on top), hearses, sleighs, and sporting vehicles representing transportation from the 19th century. You can just imagine what it must have been like driving your carriage down main street inthe 1800s. I would highly recommend a visit to Granger. There are carriages rides available throughout the summer and sleigh rides during winter months.
