  • A wonderful experience for a local historical museum with preserved articles/items of local values! Curators share knowledge and experiences for the collected treasures. Many varied items from furniture to newspaper articles. A rich historical treasure-trove of local gifts and prominent personalities from the past. Do visit this rich, well organized collection of local historical memorabilia!!! Keep up the great work for Fort Wayne and the tri-state area!
  • Hard to find not a museum but a house. Was closed only have tours by reservation during off season.
