Fodor's Review

This museum celebrates the birth of the nation. The story unfolds over the course of a guided tour, which focuses on the Gilman family, who lived in the house during the Revolutionary War era. See drafts of the U.S. Constitution and the first Purple Heart, as well as letters and documents written by George Washington and the household furnishings of John Taylor Gilman, one of New Hampshire's early governors. In July, the museum hosts the American Independence Festival.
