Because some of our books don't leave the facility, you should bring a fully charged phone or tablet to take pictures, or you can bring your own notepad and pens/pencils. Items from the Langhorne Research Room require clean hands and a pencil provided by Historic Sandusky.
Bathrooms are available on site. There are no vending machines or cafe facilities.
Wi-Fi is available in the visitor center and classroom.
The facility is HVAC-regulated, with some storage for coats, backpacks, and bags. If your research requires that you leave the visitors facility to tour the house or walk the grounds, please dress accordingly and bring an umbrella as needed.
University of Lynchburg students are encouraged to contact Historic Sandusky prior to traveling to the house. Generally the house and its research archives are open to the public on weekends, but Lynchburg students can get customized research help if they schedule an appointment prior to arrival.
