The birthplace museum was very nicely done. We mainly stopped to do Bunkham Cave. It was a great hike and very cool cave. We were able to explore a lot around it (properly). Well worth the time and effort to head out on the hike!!!!

We really enjoyed hiking the trails to the cave here! The museum, although small, was crammed with various artifacts from Hull's life. The cabin was ok to look at as well.

We visited this park one afternoon and it was very informative. While the museum is small. It packs a lot of information. I liked how you could walk through the house easily and you could picnic at one of the few tables around the yard....More
