We are thrilled to have this donation of a circa 1860 washstand that was originally at Sandusky! This was donated by Kathleen Beatrice who is the widow of Risque Hutter (1923-1974). Risque was born at Sandusky; presumably he inherited this washstand when the Hutter household was broken up in 1952 when Sandusky was sold out of the Hutter family. We are pleased to have it back at Sandusky.
Tours of house and museum are currently only available by appointment. Please call or email us in advance to set up a time to visit.
Visitors may also take a self-guided tour of the grounds and outdoor markers by using our self-guided tour brochure available outside at the visitor center..
Sandusky served as Union Headquarters during the Battle of Lynchburg, however it has seen more than 200 years of local and national history. Though the house was built in the Federal era our restoration and interpretation reflects Sandusky as it appeared 1850-1870.
