We visited the Millard Fillmore Museum recently and having already toured 36 other presidential sites, we thought this one was one of the best. Our docent, Kathy, was friendly, engaging and brought Millard Fillmore to life for us. We communicated with her before our scheduled...More

Our visit was in early evening after house tours had stopped. Parking was curbside at end of short front walkway to front porch (home is located in pleasant quiet residential neighborhood). We peered in porch front windows to get a sense of the interior. The...More

We scheduled a private tour. Our guide, Cathy, was knowledgeable and passionate about the home. The dual history ... former President’s home and artist studio for Mrs Price ... made the visit even more interesting. Small home but full of interesting artifacts including one of...More

Following the Presidential trail this was a must stop. Typical type home with several tour guides. Biggest problem is very restricted hours to visit, so plan ahead.

This small cottage is along the 6 mile walk route which goes through town. They offer a guided tour through the home set with period furnituire from when Fillmore was President. There is also a beautiful small garden around the side of the property.

Lovely little house run by the local historical society where they have gathered as much Fillmore furniture as anywhere. More story telling that artifacts but very well done and worth a stop for those who made a practice of visiting presidential sites.

You'll hear nothing about Fillmore as president (a slight disappointment)--it's all about the house and the time he and his family lived here. What amazed me is how people in this time period were able to be reasonably comfortable in such a small space (some...More
