Museum of American Fencing

Andy is a well known local figure, and extremely eccentric (in a good way!). He'll be more than happy to spin a yarn about practically anything in the museum. Lessons and a summer camp are hosted in the same location, so call ahead to make sure he's there and not busy with students.
