We thought we would stay about 5 minutes or so - well 30 minutes later we were stilling looking at the 3400 pencil sharpeners, very well displayed. It is right next to the visitor center and really is worth the stop!

Nice visitors center with super cute collection shed. Great spot to stretch legs, get a map, free bumper sticker and check out pencil sharpeners. My daughter was bummed we couldn’t buy a HH pencil sharpener.

This little place has more pencil sharpeners, all grouped by type ( automotive, locomotive, cartoon characters) than one can imagine. Really little place, but a cool spot to stop at . .

It was an interesting little stop for about 5 min or so. It's just a little shed with the sharpeners and an explanation of how it started.

Tiny building about 12 x 16. Only need about 10-15 minutes. It’s right in front of the visitors center in the middle of town so why not say you stopped in.
