  • Lived in Dover my whole life and have been here many times. Everytime I visit I learn something new. This is a wonderful local treasure with an extraordinary picture of life in the Victorian era. The staff is knowledgeable and fun. Went today on a field trip with my daughters class. The staff was patient and kind and enthusiastic to teach the kids. I love this place!
  • Awesome visit. The Historical Society has done an excellent job preserving and presenting this beautiful home.
