- The museum is housed in Claverton Manor, built by Jeffrey Wyatville in 1820 in neo-classical style, and was the site of William Churchill's first political speech in 1897. The building was converted into the museum and opened in 1961. The grounds are vast, and walking paths, picnic areas, as well as spacious parking make your visit a relaxed and varied experience. The Manor's rooms show American craftsmanship in textiles, glass, silver, and furniture from the 17th to 19th centuries. Access to the library of historical and period books is free by appointment.
