  • Friendly, knowledgeable and passionate volunteers greet you at the front door with a smile and map. Wonderful collection of artifacts from all the cultures that formed the local area. Kids also enjoyed looking at the past, it gave them an appreciation of their current circumstances.
  • Lack luster museum. Not very handicap friendly as half of the museum is upstairs. They ask for a $3 donation for a “guided tour” then after taking your $3 a head spend 60 seconds or less telling you “this is here, that is there, explore on your own.” That being said as I opened one of the first binders to read about town history I saw a gigantic spider 🕷 then told the staff who literally did nothing. There are a few cool historic items to look at but nothing amazing. If you got $3 and some time to kill worth a shot.
