The McHugh House Museum

The McHugh House Museum is an authentic turn-of-the Century home furnished with period furniture.The Diamond-shaped front windows, oak floors, decorative woodwork, and crystal chandelier in the dining room are all original to the house. The kitchen features a working 1928 Maytag washing machine. Unique to the house is the single triangular-shaped chimney that services the three fireplaces in the house. The children's room has a folding Murphy bed and toys from years ago. Different musical instruments are found in the parlor along with the delicate handwork and items used in the past. You can certainly appreciate the cultural contrast showing living with money in a small city as represented by the Victorian house versus living in the rustic farm house.
