Nancie Gudmestad is the director of the Shriver House Museum. Aside from curating the old museum, she also delivers talks about the Civil War and what the Shrivers and other civilians went through during and after the war. Back in 1996, Nancie and her husband decided to buy the house. They had it restored to its 1863 appearance, discovering a handful of historical treasures under the floorboards and behind brick walls of the house.
