The Toulmin House, Tuthill-Marx House, and Seaman's Chapel nestle serenely at the center of USA's sprawling campus. Their picturesque setting makes one think
that they might always have been there. Interestingly, the three historic structures were relocated to their present locations in the 1970s. Though architecturally and historically unrelated, the buildings have tell the story. This thematic tour and presentation will recapture the original experiences and highlight historical significance of the one time country house, town house, and chapel.
