This is one of those "cool little places" in the area that add so much charm to a visit here. The Historians are very interesting and proud of the History behind Laurel.

I am a docent at the Laurel Museum. There are facts and exhibits about Laurel during the civil war. The museum is located in an old mill workers stone house. Laurel was a mill town and this house housed four families. There is also a film about Laurel through the years and a small gift shop.
