This section of town is full of old Victorian homes however most of them are very run down or have been repurposed into multi-family homes. Right in the center is the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion. Worth a quick drive through.

If architecture is your thing you will love the Museum Hill District where you can se a number of beautifully preserved examples of classic Victorian style architecture. Be sure to see the homes onHall Steet as well.

History buffs will be very happy to see the old city and the historical story behind this town. Didn't have enough time on this visit to tour all that was available.

There are some very beautiful older homes here that had fallen into disrepair. It's clear that the Museum Hill Neighborhood Association is working hard to reclaim the area and save those homes. If I had the money to fix one up, I would certain buy one. I can see how the neighborhood has improved over the last 5 years. Worth... More

Loved the buildings and styles but sad to see them rundown. This was quite the area in its time. Would be great if people had the money to restore them to their quality of earlier days. Definitely worth driving through the area if you like historic period houses.

Steeples, towers , domes, if its architecture that is your fancy then you will definitely enjoy a walk around. Museum Hill Historic District is a jewell that will make you smile and wonder at the craftsmanship of the past. A neighborhood in the mist of re-enchantment ...this is a place to explore.
