  • All the times I have passed by this building and never stopped. I never expected such a wonderful museum. By a dual ticket for the Ohio River Museum , too. For the value they are both too good to pass up!
  • Learning that the preserved house was part of the original stockade of the late seventeen hundreds was amazing. The docent of this house tour was great. If you like history this is a don't miss museum.
