Touring the three floors and period rooms of the Alice T. Miner Museum is like taking a trip back in time. Much of the museum remains just as Alice left it representing not only her personal taste and the hints of Chicago influence from many of her friends, but the Colonial Revival Movement. The Museum has three floors and fifteen rooms. The Kitchen - with fireplace & oven, baby cradle, whale oil lamps and 17th century table - tells how family life once centered on the hearth. You will find letters written by US Presidents, samplers, silhouettes, furniture, dolls and china from the 17th - 19th centuries - collected by Alice T. Miner.
