This was a real treat to find such in depth history in this little town. The community should be proud of how well the Frontier Historical Museum has preserved this town's past. I would make an effort to stop by and check this attraction out.

we spent a short time at this museum. We go to many museums. This is a nice, small museum. Very little stands out in my memory about the place.
