AAA Editor Notes
Hager House and Museum, .5 mi. s. on Virginia Ave. in City Park at 110 Key St., offers self-guiding tours of the house built by town founder Jonathan Hager in 1739. This impregnable building, erected over two springs to assure a protected water supply, served as home, fort and storehouse for its owner. The house is furnished in period; an adjacent museum has artifacts. Beautiful herbal and flower gardens surround the home. Special events are offered, including German Christmas tours held the first two weekends in December.
