I was taken back on how well the museum is well rounded. The first floor showed the lifestyle of the Howard’s. The second floor dedicated to steam boats and tools of the trade. Best seven dollars I have spent in a long time.

Didn't think I would like it but I could have spent the day looking at everything. Loved the old style mansion. The displays in the museum were really top notch and we'll maintained. Not a bad idea for a rainy day.
