Historic Shepherdstown Museum

The historic Shepherdstown Museum was founded in 1983 to make preserve artifacts that may otherwise have been lost forever. The first floor of the museum holds the dining and sitting chambers. An invitation to a dinner at the Entler in honor of Colonel John Francis Hamtramck in 1847 sets the tone. Exhibits on the second and third floors contain local artifacts such as Sheetz rifles, a Conrad Schindler (Mary Tyler Moore’s great-great-great grandfather) copper kettle, a 1905 mail wagon, American Indian tools, and Civil War artifacts and exhibits.

We hope you enjoy our work.
