There is also a wonderful display of artifacts unearthed from an archaeological dig that uncovered remains of a Native American village. Visitors will also appreciate the beauty of the art gallery with works enhanced by the beauty of the three-story historic home that includes nearly a dozen fireplaces, high ceilings, elaborate moldings, two parlors, and period-era furnishings.
This historic home remained in the Wharton family until 1980. The Kollmorgen Corporation purchased the home in 1980 and graciously donated it to in 1996. Through public support, the home was renovated and the museum opened in 1998.
