  • The Highland Hotel - Museum was very cool to see. They used the different rooms to showcase items from the 1800’s. The hotel was built in 1807. The fireplace is the original fireplace. It was interesting to see products, clothing, shoes, toys and home decor from that time period. We also learned about how they would rescue men using this buoy 🛟 pulley system. The reason I gave it 4 star instead of 5 is slightly pricey at $8 per person and I thought it should be more like $5 but I guess in todays economy they gotta keep the doors open too! It’s worth the hour+ to take the time to see the beautiful architecture of the building and the neat stuff from the 1800’s.
  • Well folks for those of you interested in a piece of History this is the place to go. This is more than a historical society it really is a museum with docents that are quite knowledgeable. There is so much to learn and so much to see in this Museum you will need to allow at least one hour plus if you decide to walk to the lighthouse I would add another hour. It is quite interesting for those to have an interest in history, there are a lot of cool relics and a lot of stories to hear by the knowledgeable docent. Everything is ridiculously cared for and I would have to say this is probably the best local historical society I have ever been to. It is extensive and very well organized. This is more than just a place to go when you're on vacation and it's a rainy day it is a place make time for.
