Additional Notes And Comments

The Chapman Historical Museum was started in 1965, when Juliet Chapman gave her home, the DeLong House, to the community to be a local museum. In the 1980s the museum added gallery space and collections storage by acquiring and renovating a nearby carriage barn and a decade later completed the current facility with the addition of a museum shop, classroom space and accessible lobby.
