Nice little museum. Rather small and cluttered, but I believe they'll be moving to a larger site soon. I enjoyed learning more about local history.

This a very small museum but well worth the half hour or so it takes to tour it. Where else can you see a collection of keys? It is free but a donation would be appreciated.

If you want to get a good idea of this area's history this is the place. The board is working diligently to procure funding for a new and modern museum (they have the land) but the charm will be lost that this old building holds.
