Washington House Museum and Visitor Center

In December, my mom came to visit me from Utah as I just had a baby. I took her around town and came across Washington house with a little ice cream shop off to the side, so we decided to stop in and see what it was all about. We were greeted by lovely old cheerful couple and ordered ice cream. First thing I noticed was how antique this place was. I asked how long they kept this building running and unfortunately don’t remember. But, we were encouraged to go see the upstairs.

What stood out to me the most was the ceiling it had all different kinds of murals, it was very astonishing. We explored a little more, and noticed a lot of military stuff and how they honored the dead that sacrifice their lives for our freedom.

I asked my mom on her experiences there and she responded, “I love the little stage that they had there, makes you wonder if they have performances. The paintings on the ceiling was just beautiful. The cute little old-time doctors offices that were in there with the actual furniture and tools they used. I love seeing all the uniforms and all the medals.  And the ice cream was pretty yummy too. The lady that worked there was pretty fun to talk to.”

I would recommend this place to anyone that enjoys a little piece of history or have a sweet tooth! They have different kinds of souvenirs such as lighthouse t-shirts, sweatshirts and many more. Just keep in mind they only accept cash not credit card, that’s how old fashioned they are and I absolutely love it! Not often you see places only accepting cash!
