Fodor's Review

This circa-1720 saltbox is said to be the inspiration for the famous song "Home Sweet Home" written by 19th-century poet, playwright, and actor John Howard Payne. Guided tours lead you through the collections of English ceramics, American furniture, and textiles. The museum is in a historic district, within walking distance of 19th-century windmills, including the Old Hook Mill.
