DAYTON, Va. (WHSV) -- A historical home in Dayton opened its doors on Friday to Valley tourists.

The Cromer-Trumbo House was built in the late 1700s and is more than 200 years old. The home is currently only open once a month because of lack of volunteers to keep the museum running. It features antique china, art and furniture from across the Valley.

Rosemarie Palmer, the director of the museum, said the house really showcases all the history that's in the Valley, "It's our heritage and our history and there are very few places like this in the Harrisonburg area."

The museum is open the first Friday of every month from 1 - 5 p.m.
