We took a drive and happened upon this museum and what a find it is. The Lincoln flag is displayed here along with other military items. It is a beautiful building and the displays are very well done. They have concentrated on the history of the Pikes County. There are clothing displays, historical newspapers, camp letters and reports...just a bit... More

Walk in and be greeted by a kind, wonderful dog named Tamale. We were there late in the day on a saturday and the lady at the desk was helpful, spoke about the history of the Lincoln flag and gave us some local history. Not a lot to see but worth a stop.

This was our second visit to Milford. The museum was not open during our first. The mansion building is very interesting. Most of the exhibits, with the exception of the Lincoln flag, are geared toward locals. No one offered to show us around or answer any questions.

If you like American history and know who Abraham Lincoln is you should visit here. The Lincoln flag, once draped in the box at Fords theater, then used to cushion the President's head rests here.

This place has so many low key treasures. I say low key because they don't all stand out as solo features but are all very interesting as well as smartly presented. The staff are very helpful and informative. I had a very nice time and will go back again.

As far as small museums go the Columns has many interesting displays. The Hiawatha Stage coach is a favorite, the costumes and Indian artifacts a terrific experience.
