Hearthstone Historic House Museum
The Hearthstone Historic House Museum
Backstory and Context
The house was designed in the Queen Anne style by Appleton architect William Waters. The museum features exhibits about hydro-electric power and until September 2015 had an exhibit displaying Thomas Edison's toasters and coffee sets. The original light switches and wiring in the house remain and are still functional. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Several owners lived the house until 1986, when the house was sold to the Friends of Hearthstone which opened it as a museum soon after that time.
