A personally guided tour by a knowledgeable volunteer. Includes the history of the Pleasant Ridge African-American community in nearby Beetown townshiip. Don't miss going upstairs. The steep stairs are worth the climb to see the collection of local arts and crafts from the late 1800's.

Everything and more you would expect in a smaller museum. Helpful staff is able to describe their diverse collection. They have a few stories that are unexpected.

They have a nice section and a special story on their local Dr. While I do not remember, I would guess Dr. Cunningham was that doctor.
