The gorgeous,1887 Victorian home that houses Strawberry Hill Museum & Cultural Center, was once considered among the most outstanding examples, of Queen Anne-style architecture in the city. It served as an orphanage for decades, beginning with an influenza epidemic during the early 1900s. But by 1988, the Strawberry Hill Cultural Society began its conversion to a museum that would promote and preserve local Slavic heritage and culture. Available from noon to 5 (final tours begin at 4:15), guided weekend tours draw local to international visitors who enjoy seeing exquisite carved wood, massive stained glass windows and formal décor style from another era.
