This general store should be visited by everyone. Old folks to remember and youngsters to see how it used to be.. The docent, Elaine, a local lady, was wonderful and really made this stop exceptional.

Tupper Museum has all the original contents of a store from the 40's. Also has a collection of handmade Coushatta pine needle baskets from the 40's. Fabulous! Worth a stop.

Small museum with lots of pre-1940s items. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The attached telephone museum was very interesting. If you go, don't miss the mural - it changes views as you walk past it!

I thought it would be a little quaint museum And take just a few minutes. I was pleasantly surprised. After already being awe struck with the front and all the stories from the curator...we found a whole other section. The telephone area was like a...More

This museum has a little bit of everything. It has a children's telephone museum that is very interactive. It had a neat collection of nutcrackers and a Christmas room.
