That stewardship descended through four generations in the hands of the oldest female. In 2004, Clouds Hill Victorian House Museum became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (This excerpt taken from the Clouds Hill Victorian Museum website)

The Kentish Guard Armory on Pierce Street was built in 1843.

The building has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1971. The armory is unique since it is believed to be the only armory of its kind built during this period just prior to the Mexican War. Little has been done to change it over the years. (This excerpt taken from the Kentish Guards website)
