Evah C. Cray Historical Home Museum
This 25-room mansion, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is a glorious example of the opulence of the Victorian era. Built in 1882, it is distinguished by a three-story castle-like tower. Massive fireplaces, carved wood work and original chandeliers mix with Victorian furnishings throughout.
There are displays of an 1893 World's Fair, award-winning bedroom set, burled and hand-carved Quilts and elegant clothing. And you can see a 200-year-old spinning wheel, a dainty girl-child's bedroom, and roses and herbs and more.
A photo exhibit on the life of Amelia Earhart can be seen in the carriage house.
