This is a lovely home converted into art museum to hold the collection of one individual. There are also a scenic view of the river from the rear of the building. The highlight is the ceremonial robe of Chief Tecumseh (on loan),

Small art gallery. Give yourself at least one hour, unless you are a reader. There is a library in the basement that has over 4,000 books. There are some pictures from the group of seven.

Thoroughly enjoyed viewing works of extremely talented local artist and fellow Scot, Campbell Scott. Upon entering the gallery, we were welcomed by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Looking forward to future visits to this wonderful gallery.

After a local tour we were curious to know more about Scott Campbell. This museum has a great exhibit of his work and severl others. It is small and very manageable. The people were knowledgable and welcoming. It was a very enriching hour or so.
