Visit an authentically restored Victorian home while learning what life was like in late 19th century Jefferson Township. The Jefferson Township Historical Society and Museum holds a monthly Open House where the public can view furnishings, garments, antiques and décor fashionable at the time.
The museum is inside the restored George Chamberlain House, where Chamberlain and his wife, Ruth Elizabeth Speaker, lived with their children from 1874 until the late 1890s. Miss Elizabeth’s Shoppe, located in the home’s former kitchen, is a favorite stop for admirers of unique Victoriana, small antiques and handmade collectibles.
Of Special Note:
• Milton resident Amos Chamberlain built the house as a wedding gift for his son George
• The museum is on the State and National Registers of Historic Places
• Jefferson Township was named after Thomas Jefferson, who was president at the time of its creation
