Visitor Info

We would like to thank the many people planning to visit us throughout the year and would ask that you please take special note of our museum hours. For the safety of our visitors and the safeguard of this historic site, we must ask that you ONLY visit during these times, as we do not allow visitors to walk around any part of the property when we are closed. We will do whatever we can do accommodate visitors upon request*, but ask for your patience and understanding of the limited resources of a volunteer run site. Thank you for your support!

*If you would like to request a private tour on a day that we are not open to the public we please ask that you give us at least 2 weeks notice as we only have a small number of volunteers able to open the site at this time. (Please note that we will not be taking any requests December-February). For a private group of 5 or less people we charge a $50 opening fee, but for larger groups over 5 people we charge the standard admission rate. You can message us on Facebook or email to book a private tour.
