This magnificent Victorian mansion was built in 1927 by William and Martha Chapman. Their architect visited England to study Tudor manor houses. In 1941 at a famous Christmas Party, the Von Trapp family sang in the great hall. After Martha's death in 1960, the mansion was used as a seminary and drug rehabilitation center. After that it was vacant, vandalized, and burned, and slated for demolition. Thanks to the Heritage Conservancy this magnificent structure was saved and completely rehabilitated.

Other displays cover the domestic chores of the farmer's wife in the preparation and preservation of food and the making of clothing.
