Museum on history and artifacts of the area was very nice and well presented, small with very enthusiastic staff. Visited May 2010. My primary purpose for the visit was the archives as I descend from Peter Robinson Settlers (Irish who came to the area in 1823 and 1825). Appointments in advance are needed to go through the records. There was some difficulty making arrangements, but once there an Archivist worked with me 1 to 1 an entire morning to help me find records of my immigrant ancestors. I was surprised to find I they let me handle the original ship records from 1825 (very carefully and with white gloves on). Archivist also made copies of these documents for me for a fee. Very meaningful visit and awesome opportunity to handle original historical documents.
