Took our grand daughter and walked around to see all the "old" stuff. We enjoyed our day. Took our Model T there!

So much history here. One room school house/ wigwam/ Native American canoe/ home set up for early 1900's/ old style country store/ granary/ picnic tables. All of our kids loved it! Suggested donation is $3/ adult... well worth it!!! Next to the library... perfect for either a sunny or rainy day.

The museum has a great collection for a little town. It's a great stop but it's not open everyday so check the hours.
