My adventures at the historic Hearthside House Museum

We had a wonderful season at Hearthside House this year. Thanks to my beautiful Hearthside family for the adventure.



The lovely Kathy Hartley is the president and founder of the Friends of Hearthside.
It is her mission and passion to preserve this beautiful 200 year old house for years to come.




I enjoy when the young ones come to visit me in the kitchen at Hearthside. I always have cookies and lemonade for them. They love to hear my stories and ask me lots of questions about children in the olden days. It is such a reward to see there amazement.




It is very rewarding to see the young docents at the Hearthside House getting active in teaching the young visitors what it was like living and playing in the days that pasted. These two young ladies are my granddaughters following in their grandmother's footsteps. They have a real passion for history.


 We at Heathside would love to show you the house and tell you the lovely story of the families that lived here.
