Great collection of items from the time of settlement with nicely documented display cases. The adjoining buildings are fun to explore and would be great for kids

A 1700's church that was turned into a Revolutionary Fort to protect the community. Interesting displays: the first fire engine, Indian relics, military hardware. Well preserved. A walk around guide and a bit more relevance would help the visitor.
