We had a wonderful tour of the Randall House Museum. The curator is so knowledgeable and was willing to answer to all of our questions. She is such a great storyteller and made the items come to life.

Make sure to take the tour instead of just looking around as you get so much information from the guide who brings the house to life. They have done an amazing job trying to preserve the local history as well as the house itself ....More
