“[I] did not expect the museum to be so wonderful, as we were visiting from a larger city. The staff was friendly, educational and helpful. The building and exhibits were beautiful. We spent the entire day there. It was fun seeing parts of the mansion as it was when it was a home, plus many of the pieces of art were extraordinary. Loved it!” – Connie Billmaier, Google Review June 2021 

“Some fun and powerful work… loved the museum, it’s a great space.” – Jacob Burmood, Facebook post and comment, August 2021. 

“For years I’ve been meaning to stop in for a visit.  I finally did so in March.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  Thank you for a great afternoon. I was particularly drawn to the two paintings by William Paxton.  Since then I’ve taken to the internet to find out more about him and his other works.” – Kurt Lee Killen, personal email, April 2021.
