I remember my own trip with Marcy Sacks to do primary research in New York City. Love that it’s still happening!

The Gardner House Museum, Albion Historical Society, opens for the season tomorrow. No snow, we promise.If you are an admirer of nineteenth-century architecture and furniture, a visit to the Gardner House Museum in Albion is the perfect way to spend a few hours. Upon entering the Victorian yellow-brick house, built in 1875, you are treated to a first floor that contains two fully furnished parlors, a music room with an ornate foot pump organ, and an elegant dining room. The second floor features a bathroom with a metal bathtub and kerosene water heater; a carved walnut bedroom suite; and World War II memorabilia, including flags, helmets, uniforms and 400 photos of Albion residents who served in the armed forces. Guests are also welcome to tour the basement, which has a small general store area, a kitchen, and a primitive-tool room.

This site, which reopens tomorrow, is located at 509 S. Superior St., Albion, MI 49224. It is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 2-4 p.m. and by appointment.
