Museum seems to be a craft day for the ladies in the town and very little was devoted to the Hall of Fame. Was very disappointing. You even had to eat in cafe to use toilets.

My friend and I called by to look at museum and displays of wood products. There is a Thai restaurant there, but we didn't sample. Good area for functions (wedding set up). The museum was interesting with info on champions of past.
