  • This is a neat little museum if you're interested in George Washington and that time period. They have several original items and documents of Washington's and many other family heirlooms. They also have original documents from several other founding fathers and presidents. The curator knows all about Washington's life; I learned several things I'd never heard before.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the museum, and the historical context provided by Don the curator was excellent. Exhibits include original documents, paintings, busts, and family heirlooms. A wonderful collection!
