We were impressed with the amount of local history we were able to learn while visiting the museum. It was well worth our stop. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and very informative.. We were able to see most of the museum in about 60-90 minutes.

If you enjoy history at the local level, you will love this museum. Chock full of clothes, farm implements, photos, antiques, and local history. Across the street from the court house which is an architectural marvel by itself.
