Amazing historic home, only wish we had visited on a day when the home was open to the public. While visiting in the off season has it's perks, it can make getting to attractions when they are open challenging. We walked around the house and on the surrounding trails.

Hopefully you will be able to see this museum once they finish their renovations. From the outside it looks like it would be fun to visit. I was able to enter the grounds ( through a whales jaw bone) but did not enter the house.
Nice place to check out. We took a great photo at the entranceway and enjoyed reading about the history of the house. Plenty of free parking across the street.
