  • Spent a great (windy) day with fellow Huffs church members and our Pastor at the Seminary learning a lot about the Museum and surrounding areas history. Very informative tour. Great day out with my son and very educational trip for both of us. The Battlefield and Peace are a must see.
  • The museum is very well done, covering topics from slavery, religion, and use of the seminary as the field hospital. The exhibits were very moving and impactful, videos concise but set the stage for that floor topic. Worth the visit!
