You get out of your car, enter the building and go back in time. There is something for everyone. The people inside will share and answer your questions. Relax and enjoy.

A small scale and easy to get around local historical center that is extremely well done. Personnel is friendly and helpful. The grounds include a couple of outbuildings of note. Well worth the time to visit.

Trying to find your ancestors? How about just like history? Well this place is loaded with both, all Midland! I would have said Excellent but the hours of operation are not everyday, so you must make allowances for your visit.
