Havens Homestead Museum

This museum is less than one mile from home, we pass it everyday,
and I have never visited.
Every time we drive by I tell the hubs that one day I would like to stop,
and photograph it.
He always says the same thing,
"do you want to do it now, do you want me to turn around??"
I always say "next time".

We stopped on Friday, it was a gorgeous day,
the sky was blue and the temperatures were near 60 degrees.

It wasn't open but the images I wanted did not require that.

Restored 1827 homestead of farmer and fish peddler 
Josiah Curtis Havens,
the museum is maintained by the historical society in my home town.
The property contains many historic items from our area.


  1. really sweet place. love the garage doors. :) several things brought back memories from wisconsin - the stanchion watering cup, the sharpening grindstone. :)

  2. I'm so glad when places of interest like this are preserved & you can visit! It looks like a great place to visit with so much to see & enjoy.
    Have a great day!

  3. So so cool! I just love places like this! I always enjoy the tours - listening to the descriptions of things and learning about other times. Hope you get to visit when it's open some time - but these pics are great!

  4. In fact, such a museum should not be open, because this is something to look at. Very interesting. Regards.

  5. LOVE! All the pics are wonderful. This takes me back to a place I visited in W. FLA

    Thank you so much for sharing these, Debbie.

  6. What a charming museum!

  7. You chose a gorgeous day to take photos there!

  8. Oh, how incredibly charming and sweet! Your photos are beautiful, my friend, and the sunshine is simply glorious. Hugs and blessings!

  9. Very nice! I like the rust shots and the old farm implements. This reminds me of a place we have here.

  10. Looks fascinating. I am taking a guess that you will be back there sometime when it's open.

  11. I always find these places fascinating. great that it is being restore and now you have to stop by again adn let us see the inside!!!

  12. That is so cool, we have come across ones like this in our travels, I love when the old stuff can be restored and generations can see how past ones have had to live. Isn't it funny how we don't stop to see the things so close to us, perhaps because we feel it will always be there. It looks like they do a wonderful job on keeping it maintained!

  13. Wow, I loved this one because I really enjoy photos from history. These were some very unique and beautiful one. Thanks for sharing them my friend. Blessings and hugs!

  14. I love old homes and buildings, rust and pealing paint, and history! You've captured these beautifully! I could spent some time there!
