This 1853 Greek Revival house, listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, was home to the German-American Kempf family from 1888 to 1953. Now managed by a volunteer nonprofit board, it is furnished with Victorian antiques and many of the Kempfs’ treasures, including Ann Arbor’s first concert grand piano, an 1877 Steinway. When the coronavirus is no longer a threat, the museum will return to presenting exhibits of period domestic life, a traditional German family Christmas, Valentine teas, and a Wednesday noon lecture series in both spring and fall. There are currently guided tours by appointment with some Covid restrictions.
