If walls of local homes could talk, they would tell narratives one hundred years old of marble and brick creations housing farmers and summer guests. Visitors will learn architectural terms and investigate famous houses such as the Belmar Mansion and Molly Brown’s summer home, Avoca. Uncover the stories of the people who lived and loved in these historic houses.
