Completely staffed by volunteers, the Museum at Colonial Beach preserves and presents the history of this quaint and historic town on the Potomac River. The building which houses the Museum has served many purposes including use as the town's first telephone exchange. One room features graffiti carved into the wall by people waiting for their long-distance calls to be connected. Many aspects of the town's history are on display from its early days as a resort for Washington residence to its heyday as a gambling destination in the 1950s. This is not dusty history -- its fun! The hours are limited due to being run by volunteers but well worth stopping by!
