Located in Hagerstown
City Park, this museum offers guided tours of the house built by town founder Jonathan Hager in 1739. This impregnable building erected over two springs to assure a protected water supply, served as home, fort and storehouse for its owner. The house is furnished in period; an adjacent museum has artifacts. Craft demonstrations take place Sundays in summer.
Open Tuesday through Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 2pm-5pm in April through December.
