American Independence Museum, Exeter New Hampshire Attraction

real estate Step back in time and come visit the Exeter, NH American Independence Museum. Housed in antique New England buildings, this museum offers the stories of the brave people who founded this great land. You can take tours of the Ladd-Gilman House which is a National Landmark Property. Guided tours run Wed-Sat from 10am to 4pm with the last tour starting at 3. And... Although it is still under construction there is also The Folsom Tavern, which will open in 2007. This great old tavern was once the heart of the Exeter NH political scene during Revolutionary days. The Tavern was recently relocated and now sits right down on Water Street in downtown Exeter.

According to the website for the Museum:
"Exhibits in the Ladd-Gilman House highlight the Society of the Cincinnati, the nation's oldest veterans' society, and its first president, George Washington. Among the museum''s permanent collection of documents chronicling the nation's founding are an original Dunlap Broadside of the Declaration of Independence and early drafts of the U.S. Constitution. View these fascinating documents during the museum''s annual American Independence Festival. Permanent collections include American furnishings, ceramics, silver, textiles and military ephemera."


It is well worth a visit to our great museum and to downtown Exeter!
