Mission Statement

The Forbes House Museum explores America’s birth as a global economic power in the 19th century through the prism of one family’s inspiring stories of adventure, innovation, entrepreneurial spirit, and civic leadership.

Description

Our organization is committed to responsibly preserving and promoting the Forbes family history in the context of the social, cultural, economic and political currents of its time. Built in 1833 as the home of Margaret Perkins Forbes and her family, the Forbes House Museum includes Chinese export art, Civil War artifacts and Lincoln memorabilia among its collections. The Greek Revival home is a National Historic Landmark.
