While this building stood during the Civil War, it still looks as beautiful today. The artifacts vary from period pieces to more modern. Not really sure why Hummels need to be displayed but there aren't many so no big deal. The courtroom was like walking...More

Great little museum. The $5 admission was the right price. It only took me an hour to get through. I would recommend you not bring young kids.

As a civil war buff this place had lots to offer. I'm also a courthouse buff. The old courtroom made me feel like I was in to kill a mockingbird. Civil war artifacts were plentiful and interesting though I'd say there's a definitive southern slant....More

As a person who has studied the history of the Civil War for more than 60 years, I understand why it has recently become politically correct to be offended by all things Confederacy, including the Stars and Bars battle flag. But I believe it is...More
