  • Very nice local museum. It has excellent displays and a nice atmosphere. I also enjoyed the agricultural, logging, and blacksmithing tools and accoutrements in the annex. If you enjoy small, local museums, this is a good one.
  • There is so much to see, experiencing the player piano was a work out and fun. Lyn L was most helpful with accessing resources as I did family research on the Mabel Ammer's family.
