The Museum combines a bit of history, a look at an old and restored Victorian home and has a very interesting doctor’s home office. The Rosson House Museum is located in Heritage Square, so there are other buildings of the period located there as well.

All tours last approximately 60 minutes. The maximum number of people per tour is 12. Groups of 8 or more require reservations.
