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.
Hearing the stories of despair in Ireland in 1846-47, brothers Captain Robert Bennet Forbes and John Murray Forbes were stirred into action. With help from local dignitaries, area residents and the United States Government, they amassed 800 tons of provisions, broke a sailing record, and saved thousands of lives. Come see the artifacts and historic accounts from their incredible philanthropic mission during the height of the Great Potato Famine. Exhibition open January 27 - May 19, 2018.
