The Hunter House Victorian Museum is a non-profit 501(c)3 historic house museum with a mission to tell the human stories of late 19th and early 20th century life through the lens of the everyday experiences and collections of the Hunter Family, their staff, and their local community in order to foster a commitment to preserving local heritage, inspire an appreciation for the broader historical narrative, and reach diverse communities through inclusive, accessible, educational, and innovative programming.
We are a family of creative minds, qualified curators, and professionals in different fields who are bound by an undying passion for the History Museum world. We are proud to be a staff of 3 millennial women here at the Hunter House, and are all honored to continue to to serve the mission that Eloise Hunter, another history loving woman, endowed to us.
