CampbellHouseRobertCampbellBuilt in 1851, the first house in the ele­gant Lucas Place neigh­bor­hood, the Camp­bell House was the home of renowned fur trader and entre­pre­neur Robert Camp­bell and his fam­ily from 1854 until 1938. The museum con­tains hun­dreds of orig­i­nal Camp­bell pos­ses­sions includ­ing fur­ni­ture, paint­ings, cloth­ing, let­ters, car­riages and a unique set of inte­rior pho­tographs taken in the mid-1880s.

Meet Rachel – CHM’s third sum­mer intern.  Rachel came all the way from Rochester, New York to spend the sum­mer with us (which we think is pretty snazzy) and has been doing some great work with our col­lec­tion over the past cou­ple months.

What are you study­ing and where? I’m study­ing Museum Stud­ies and Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment and Tourism(try say­ing that three times fast!) at Rochester Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (RIT) in Rochester, New York.

Why Camp­bell House?  I thought it would be an inter­est­ing place to work and learn about the his­tory of the Camp­bells.  Even though CHM is small, it has a lot of trea­sures worth seeing!
