This is a very interesting little museum off the Main Street. Filled with lots of history of the area, antiques, and displays. We really enjoyed our visit. My grandson’s favorite was the 2 headed goat head mount.

There were a couple of rooms of old west mining and daily life items, but was not super informative. The mineral displays were pretty.
