If you have some spare time ( even only 45minutes) pay a visit. The building includes the old court house, a representation of an old one room schoolhouse and tons of old time memorabilia of the area. Reminds me of the Smithsonian museum in DC.

The museum might be fine but don't go there for information. The guy behind the desk was conducting personal business on the phone and totally ignored us. After 10 minutes we left. Not a good impression for visitors.

I can't say enough about this delightfully eclectic museum. I won't spoil the surprise but be sure to check out the jail in the basement.

We reluctantly took a break from our family reunion to visit this museum. Our grandsons could not have been happier. There were interesting exhibits for all three of them, ranging in age from 14 down to 8. Grandpa was equally captivated in his looking at...More

The museum is deceiving because when you first enter it appears the museum is on only one level. The admission is free. Each room has an exhibit about the region. My wife asked about the restrooms and discovered the jail on the way. The jail...More

This is a very nice museum with lots of local history and artifacts. We enjoyed our visit and found the old jail very interesting.
