Amid its Victorian furnishings and décor, the museum offers rotating displays of historical information relevant to the region’s development plus a treasure hunt for children. Past exhibits have included period dress and photos of early settlers. Here, the historical society also offers a guide to other historical residences and downtown buildings. The mansion is open from 1 PM to 5 PM Tuesday through Saturday from May to September. October through April, the mansion is open from 1 PM to 4 PM Tuesday through Saturday.
