  • Wonderful tour and wonderful preservation of our country's history. Well worth the time and money invested to see it.
  • The Society restores and saves historical documents for posterity.. The staff answered all of my questions, and even showed me original papers from the 17th century (before the pilgrims landed in the new world.) It's a great place for someone interested in our history.
