“A trip through the collection of locals”

What a collection of glassware, carvings, mining, home goods, just a real interesting place to enjoy. Connected to a local eating stop, and step back in time!

“Love This Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

A museum composed of stuff somebody collected, mostly old mining stuff. This town always felt like it was lost in time and nobody cared. All the piled up rock around the creekbed shows massive amounts of mining as its legacy. A fun afternoon and a scenic drive to get there.

This is a collection of collections. There's 50's political buttons, refrigerator magnets, various bullets on a board, firearms, a 119' hand carved wooden chain, bunches of carved elephants, Scotty dogs, and cows. replicas of period rooms, cooking tools, the story of a Pulaski and a Sprag Pole. Logging, Mining, Fire Service, and small town life are here to see. Eclectic and Fun !

“Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Does not look like much from the outside. You have to enter it through a bar/restaurant and a closed door. Once you go through it, you are surprised by the size and scope of the operation. It has everything from mining equipment to little nicknacks. It is still a work in progress but a bargain even without considering the price of admission -- free with donation requested. Well worth the stop.
