Drake House Museum

Drake House Museum

Visitors to the Drake House Parlor will find a variety of Victorian era treasures, including a horse-hair Empire Style sofa, a 7-legged Creiger piano, crazy quilts, and a stuffed heath hen, which seems to fascinate most young visitors. This land-bound bird was once known as a poor man's dinner. Now extinct, the rarity is largely seen in enclosed glass cases like the one at Drake House and in the pages of natural history books.

The Drake House Museum is currently closed for renovations.

We hope you enjoy our work.
