I love how much history is right around every corner! This was such a cool place to explore, and learn a bit of history I didnt even know about! Everyone was super friendly, and we just wanted to buy everything in there!

We had no idea what a "measuring mill" was but we're glad that we now do. The boxes are handmade in three sytles with various hand paintings and different finishes. The mill has many other items from the past that are unique and well presented....More
