  • I've been here many times over the years, my latest excursion was for the middle school art show. My daughter had some pieces in it. This is a great spot to see the oldest house in New Hampshire, some unique ephemera and pieces from the area, as well as learning about the great local history. If you are at all interested in history this should be a stop for you. If you have absolutely no interest in history it's still worth stopping in just for the experience.
  • Worth it. If you are an American history buff, this place is for you! Kids loved it too.
