Open House for Barn Project and Wilcox Diaries


This Swart-Wilcox 1807 German-Palatine vernacular house, was built by Revolutionary War soldier Lawrence Swart, and was lived in by only one other family, Henry Wilcox, in its 200 year history. The house tells the story of the two families who lived there, as well as the city that grew up around it with the people, institutions, and events that focused on the local area. The SW House Museum has been restored to the 1870-1910 era when Henry & Phoebe lived there with their family, and they watched the railroad come to town and the farmlands turn to housing developments. The Swart-Wilcox Museum Open House celebrates Henry Wilcox's diaries and will explain the addition of the historic period barn. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
