This is a great place to visit to learn about the areas history. Sections are divided by periods. Lots of local items to view and read about. Plenty of parking. No charge to view, but donations are accepted. One floor with restrooms available.

Really have a nice glimpse of the history of the area in a manor that would appeal to all age groups. More in there than we thought.
