Absolutely LOVE touring the Fenton. It's great for anyone wanting to learn about the local history. While their everyday tours are great, I especially love their Christmas season tours. They decorate the museum (house) beautifully. The Fenton also has a library for anyone wanting to read local history books. I highly recommend visiting.
