Kelton House Museum & Garden
Step back into Ohio's past in an elegant 19th century Columbus town home that served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Antique furniture, music boxes, and decorative accessories highlight a tour by a costumed docent. The Kelton House was built in 1852 by Columbus businessman Fernando Cortez Kelton. The home was continuously occupied by members of the Kelton family until 1975, when Grace Kelton, Fernando's granddaughter, died. She left her home to the Columbus Foundation which contracted with the Junior League of Columbus to restore and maintain the home as a museum of local history and the decorative arts.
Reflecting the culturally diverse nature of the past and the present, the Museum interprets preserves and develops its facility and collection, interprets local history, educates the community, and trains volunteers.
