Enjoyed our visit to this museum and really fell upon it; not a planned stop along our trip westward. Worth the stop.

We love visiting small museums that are off the beaten trail. They often hold curious surprises. This one is truly a gem. They have photo boards of local high school graduating classes dating back to the 1950s. It was interesting to see how we have...More
