We arrived about 40 minutes before closing, and the volunteers were great. My granddaughters were so excited to see all the exhibits. I believe the admission for adults were $4 and kids were free. Well worth it!

Housed in a 1905 schoolhouse, this is a small but worthwhile museum. Locals have donated family memorabilia, which makes it all feel more personal and relatable.

While the place is small, it has two floors of displays. It is housed in an old school building that has a history of its own. The volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable, and we learned a lot about the history of the surrounding area. For...More
