Amble from your Millersport Inn to this one-of-a-kind home. The Kelton House Museum and Garden is a carefully restored dedication to days gone by. Nestled in downtown Columbus, this Victorian structure allows guests to return to the 19th century and the secrets of the Underground Railroad. The original owners of the home, Fernando Cortez Kelton and his wife Sophia, sought to end slavery within the United States. In doing so, they opened their doors to those wishing to flee further north. Guests now can learn of their triumphs and hardships through period details, documents and photographs. It's a powerful experience. The Kelton House Museum and Garden is open only from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, so scheduling is essential. Private tours are available but must be made by appointment. Donations are welcomed.

Columbus museums are for all, not just a precious few. Their variety is unmatched. BBOnline is sure you will agree (and approve).
