A neat little culture center offering the areas history and culture for future generations. Weird hours - open every day 10am-2pm. If you have the time to kill as well as meeting the short hours they're open, take this little gem in.

We took our youth group to visit this museum. While it is small, there are some very interesting displays to see and the staff and volunteers are very helpful.
