The 1807 Swart-Wilcox House Museum is open every Sunday from 1:00 to 3:00 during the summer for informal tours and a Summer Sunday Series of programs focusing on topics of local interest. Programs begin at 1:15 PM. There is no charge for either the programs or the tour of this handicap accessible historic house. Light refreshments are served.
Parking is available across the street in the parking lot, or cars can park on the lawn by the edge of the trees. If good weather programs are held on the lawn, so bring your own chair if you’d like.
