Unbelievably interesting collection, housed inside an old schoolhouse. Beautifully and professionally showcased items representing civil war soldiers and their lives. All locally discovered, this place is a treasure! The best civil war collection I have ever seen! And the collector is on site!

I've been to the museum many, many times, and it is one of my favorite places. It is in an old schoolhouse and you must meet D.P. Newton, the owner, and get his stories about the artifacts and the surrounding area.

The Museum was closed that day, but I would definitely drive back to walk through the museum - my sons enjoyed being outside at the displays that were on the grounds
