Talbot County's intriguing history is presented in a high-tech experience that lets visitors explore at a relaxed pace. On section shows how the County's geography - miles of waterfront surrounding verdant farms and forests - has influenced its growth. The second, possibly more fascinating section, focuses on some of the people who have made an enduring impact, from Frederick Douglass to Artist Ruth Starr Rose. A touch screen allows visitors to flip through a number of brief bios ranging from early settlers to 20th century developer James Rouse, an Easton native. A fun experience in the heart of downtown Easton!

In October 2015 this organization moved into a new building. The antique shop moved, also. The houses are no longer open for tours. Everything is different, except the garden. All reviews prior to that date are now irrelevant.

Small but worth a short visit. Meander down the lovely brick sidewalks of Easton and spend a bit of time in this sweet little museum.
