This collection of pioneer artifacts was one of the best I've seen. Multiple rooms of various household items, guns and ammo, wartime collectibles, political campaign buttons, musical instruments, fashions and western sculptures. I really enjoyed this place. Probably spent a couple hours here.

Just a great collection of well displayed artifacts and a good number of odd items such as WWII ration stamps and Japanese script printed by the U.S. government. Guns, dresses, books, tools, technology, etc... Almost forgot - it's free.

A lot of items displayed-too many in fact -but its a free entrance and probably cannot afford a curator to organize a rotation of displays. The volunteer was helpful. An audio tour would be a great addition.
