Explore America’s birth as a global economic power in the 19th century through the prism of one family’s inspiring stories of adventure, innovation, entrepreneurial spirit and civic leadership. Long considered the jewel of Milton, this majestic Greek revival mansion was built in 1833 and contains the treasures of four generations of the Forbes family including China trade heirlooms and Abraham Lincoln memorabilia. Historic Preservation work has recently been completed. The museum is open to the public for tours at 11am and 2pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
