Description

The Museum at the Friends Home is housed in a 1905 Quaker boarding home located within the village's Quaker Historical District. There are 22 exhibit rooms and a research library on three floors. The museum offers a ladies high tea each spring and tours of the museum and two Quaker meeting houses. Our ghostly history walking tours are very popular throughout the year as are our elementary school tours. Twice a year the museum highlights a major exhibit in addition to the 22 rooms within the building. Volunteers attend are required to attend one class but everyone is encouraged to have fun. This museum is not your usual stuffy museum run by old people. Our motto is: If you like history, you're gonna love us!
