Such a gorgeous building with amazing history. The curator met us as we walked in and spoke to us for a long time. He was extremely knowledgeable and fun to talk to.

Well stocked and maintained little museum in heart of historical district. Good collection of ammo, emblems and preserved writings on the walls from when it served as both a hospital and prison. $5.00 well spent.
