We spent a couple of happy hours at this museum. It is nicely curated with old photos and memorabilia of the early pioneers. Half of the museum is an old house, fully furnished with heirlooms from the founding families.

Great little museum honoring the first settlers in the area and chronicling the famous people and development in the area. Also really enjoy the Victorian house tour! Well worth the $6 adult ticket price.
