We were driving through the area and decided to stop here. We gave a donation, but the museum itself is actually free. They had several interesting exhibits on the town and its immigrant history. Definitely worth a stop!

A great little community museum that remains focused on the history of a great little town. They work hard to change up some of the subjects each year.

We have an old Cape from 1784 and found some interesting items when renovating. The staff at the museum was very helpful in finding out the meaning behind the straw doll.
