Built 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!
