This was my favorite stop in Jamestown. We were met by a volunteer named Charlie and he had a wealth of information about the house and area. There was also free coffee and donuts. Beautiful old house filled with donated articles from the past. The house on the inside seems much larger than what it appears. There is a basement... More

This historic house features beautiful woodwork and stained glass, but equally interesting is the remarkable collection of local memorabilia. The materials tell the story of the community. The volunteer staff are very dedicated and donations are appreciated. Adults interested in local history would enjoy this site.

The displays are wonderful, and well described, but it was very stuffy in the museum, as it was a HOT day, and there is no air-conditioning!

As far as museums go this one is pretty nice. Lots of antiques to look at and the Mansion that the museum is in is lovely. I for one enjoy museums and this one is worth the look-see.

This is a four-story (including the basement) turn of the century mansion chock-full of local history and artifacts. Open seasonally and FREE (donations accepted,of course). There is much information on local life in the late 19th and early 20th century with some amazing antiques donated by locals and former residents, for example, Peggy Lee's evening gown to primitive farm implements...

I love going to this museum every time I'm in town. Last year I took my dad to the county museum where I now live, and he was polite, but he said it can't hold a candle to the SCMM, and I have to agree. There are so many exhibits...I always see something new every time. And I love the... More

This was a really pleasant way to spend part of an afternoon, moreso because I was the only visitor there for the entire time, and also because the volunteer at the desk [an older man] was most helpful in telling me about the house's history, and pointed out various displays and single objects that had interesting stories behind them.

I've visited lots of local history museums over the years, in the U.S. and Europe and this is one of the best I've seen anywhere. It is organized, clean, interesting and packed with things to look at and learn about. It is clear that there is community pride in this town. Thank you for keeping history alive!

Took my grandson to the museum and he enjoyed it. The basement with its items were especially of interest to him. Staff was accommodating and helpful.
