McCook House - Civil War Museum State Memorial


category : Museums
This large Federal-style brick house is a memorial to the Fighting McCooks, a nickname given to the family because of their military service during the Civil War. Daniel McCook built this home, and his family lived here until 1853. During the Civil War, Daniel's family contributed nine soldiers to the Union cause, including five generals. Brother John's family contributed five officers. Four of Daniel's family, including Daniel himself, died in the conflict.

The restored house has several period rooms and a large room of exhibits on the McCook family and the Civil War for visitors to tour. Special exhibits are on display. Museum is open Memorial Day thru 2nd weekend of October.
