This museum had a large amount of exhibits on the town and its history. The exhibits were well organized by categories and dates i really liked the large amount of displays on the schools...pictures, news articles. Trophies, etc. From way back.

This was one of the most unexpected gems of the trip. They have precisely captured their small towns history. From Mr. Johnson's hair clippers from the first Barber shop in town to wedding dresses from 1800's marriages. If you like museums - go to this....More
