Nice home where the guide gives you such personal attention. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. This is an old large home w/interesting history and is kept in a way that you feel like you are visiting someone's home.

This museum is about the Ross family. They travelled the world and brought back many gifts, especial from Asia. Recommend you do the Christmas open house in late November, early December. The community decorates the rooms. It is a highlight of the town
