Very interesting and nice to see so many local antiques/artifacts still with the inn. The guide was very knowledgeable. Awesome that the log part has been there since 1799!

Great for history buffs. Original buildings and the tour guides were very knowledgeable. Our third or fourth time at this museum and we learn something new each time. Good for families. Suggested age for children should be at least 5 or 6.

We had an incredible visit to this authentically restored stagecoach stop. The building has stood since 1799 and is not rebuilt which seems to be unique in the area. The museum tour is friendly and interesting with informed docents. We toured during Christmas candlelight tours...More

Visited with a group of retirees. The docents are very knowledgeable and really knew a lot about the museum, its contents and the people of the era. Would be great for children too.

I have taken many groups to Compass Inn, with many senior citizens. They really enjoy the living history. The docents are excellent, share the origins of words and phrases and are attentive to all.
