A Museum of 19th Century life, Kelton House Museum and Garden was also a stop on the Underground Railroad, and is a perfect rainy-day destination, although it’s lovely in any weather. A private family home for 150 years, this lovely Victorian has been restored and maintained by the Columbus Junior League, both inside and out. Built by a wealthy Victorian family, the downtown home has seen Columbus grow and change over the last century and a half!
