  • A quaint walk through history it adds a little extra to a nice walk through town. It's by donation and you can tell all the guides love what they do.
  • I enjoyed being greeted by an enthusiastic volunteer at this small museum, and was pleased to learn more about this area, as there is a rich history.
  • A very nice museum, tasteful displayed! So worth checking out. Public washrooms next door and a large parking lot!
  • I Thoroughly Enjoyed This Museum The materials were donated by locals and the displays were all assembled by local volunteers. You can feel the history here. There are displays more fully explaining many of the murals with additional materials as background. When I travel, I always like to go to the local museums, and I am rarely disappointed; each has its own personality. This is one of the best I have seen, thanks.
  • A bit of nostalgia as well as history of the community.
