“History Lesson”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

Visited with my family during late summer last year. When entering the center you are directed to a room for a brief welcome before being guided to the reconstructed jail. Then, just watch and listen. The lighting, sounds, etc., lends to the ominous atmosphere that draws you into the experience of what life must have been like for the prisoners. A great education experience.

“Interesting Historic Museum”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

You will learn a lot of history when you go through this museum. Information you may have never heard before and certainly not read in a history book. The town has a lot of history and I think most people will enjoy visiting this museum.
