Even though the size of the museum is not very big, there is a lot of history stored up in that house. I really needed more time to see and read everything that was there.

Well worth the visit as one will learn about the history of the area. One walks through the various rooms that are very well organized. There is a nice gift shop at the end featuring lots of local items.

This museum deserves every award it has received. Intelligently organized, wonderfully eccentric, this place captures life in the community in a totally fascinating way.
