The most unique button collection in New England!

When Myra Keep Lovell Moulton died in 1988, the last of a long line of Keeps in Monson, she willed her property, its contents and an endowment fund to the town with two stipulations:

It must be opened to the public on one day during the first year after acceptance of the property.

It must be named the Keep Homestead Museum.
