This amazing museum has hands-on items for kids, and free admission. I saw all many things in the short time we had. Favorites: log cabin, phone booth, washing "machines" with ringers, and a fluoroscope machine from a shoe store! Definitely worth it.

It's pretty amazing how these smaller towns preserve their history so well. This museum is a quality museum and definitely worth a visit. Don't forget to check out the indoor outhouse ;D
