The Christian Heritage Museum is a privately-owned collection of over 20,000 biblical artifacts located in Hagerstown, Maryland. Gene S. Albert, Jr. has been collecting rare Bibles and other Christian documents since the early 1980s.
Many of these artifacts are now housed in the loft of of his climate-controlled barn, home of the museum. One of the unique attractions of the museum is the invitation to touch and purchase the artifacts. Despite being worth tens of thousands of dollars,
"we happen to believe that these were made and meant to be seen, and that's why we put them out for the general public," Albert says.^^
Albert also maintains
Historical Reproductions (which reproduces antique prints) and
Creative Home Builders (real estate).
