The docent here was a 90 year old man who had lived through most of the history of the town. My husband recognized him from "Texas CountryReporter." He made this small museum come to life.

This park is so clean and visitor friendly. Clean, big public restrooms, spacious pavillions with oodles of picnic tables, interesting museum, indoors and outdoors. This park would be a great asset to any city.

The building itself is an oppty. for a photo op. Check it out. It has tons of interested facts and exhibits of the city's past. Well worth the time to visit it.

The 89 year volunteer tour guide is wonderful. Loaded with knowledge. Too bad as tourists we didn"t have more time to listen to all his stories. After 30 minutes was he was just getting warmed up!

We were hoping to see what the building was like when in use, instead it held photographs and displays - both interesting.

On a very stormy morning we went to the Vereins Kirche. We were the first visitors of the day and were given a friendly and in-depth description of the history of the town and the Kirche by a delightful 80-something native, a veteran of WW2.
