This use to be the old police department. But it is amazing to go and see our culture. The old town clock is amazing to see. It brings back memories that I love.

Zenobia was knowledgeable and entertaining as a guide. Enjoyed our time with her, and loved the museum. The gift shop downstairs has some beautiful items as well.
