Met by a man named Justice and the Museum Curator on the 4th floor of an old courtroom. I purchased two bound books for genealogical purposes. The Museum focuses on the Hatfield and McCoy feud and Eastern Kentucky artifacts.

Was only $5 to enter per person. Enjoyed the curator telling us about a few of the exhibits. Had lots of local artifacts. My husband is more the museum guy, but this one was just big enough for me to enjoy too.
