  • This is an exemplary house museum -- really world class. Every object is of interest. The beauty and simplicity of the Quaker architecture is pleasing to the eye. The gardens are lush. Our guide was thorough, knowledgeable, and welcoming. Everyone who loves history should see this out of the way gem of American history. (I say out of the way but I do not mean hard to get to!)
