This is a pretty cool museum. Take the time to talk to the ladies that work there. Make sure to ask them if it's haunted and what they've experienced.

At one time after sitting empty and being vandalised this home was scheduled to be demolished. Fortunately it was saved and is being repaired. Nice Fireman's museum inside. Worth the small entry fee. Imagine living there when it was built.

Beautiful snapshot of history. A scavenger sheet helped us to look a bit further and see some details that we might have missed.

This is a very cool attraction, my son (9 yo) really enjoyed the tour. The tour is self guided so you can take your time on the things that interested you most.
