We enjoyed our visit, and very much liked learning about the local history of Trinity. It reinforced our walk about the historical town.

A fairly small collection of photographs, household items, tools, etc. from the past, largely donated by local people. Well labeled. Outside exhibits include a World War I field gun and an early fire pumper. $5.00 admission.
