I saw this museum listed when I checked out James Madison home in Orange Virginia. I was very pleasantly surprised at how well done this museum is. The woman volunteere at the front desk gave me a short tour through the rooms and explained each and pointed out what I considered the best objects. Almost all items are original. I loved the bed and chair of president Taylor. An original house from 1733 was moved into the museum.
We were on a presidential trip and this was easily the best stop. The Manager was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They also were the only facility in the area that offered a military discount. Bravo
