Adjacent to the rolling hills and open meadows of Osbornedale State Park, the Osborne Homestead Museum in Derby encompasses the house and grounds of the former Frances Osborne Kellogg Estate, constructed in the mid-1800's.

The Colonial Revival building displays the original contents of the estate, including a collection of antiques and fine arts. The Museum's grounds are landscaped with formal flower gardens, ornamental shrubs, and flowering trees.

The Museum periodically exhibits the works of a number of talented artists. Stop by to sample the latest offerings whenever the museum is open.
