Local artist, Jerry Thomas, deserves the great little museum and the regional reknown. The curator gives an informative and historically knowledgeable tour. It's great that he has kept his eye on his hometown.

This museum is an excellent way to get a historical perspective of the area. Well laid out with brief and easy to read descriptions of what is on display. The adjoining art museum only adds to the delight of a visit.
