The museum is named after its last resident, who lived there happily and independently for some 75 years until 1995, when she was 102 years old. The contents and appearance of the property have been preserved, offering insight into bygone times.

In August of last year, it re-opened after undergoing a major restoration, supported by money from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
