  • There's some cool stuff in here. It has several exhibits from various time periods in Polk County. It's supposedly haunted.
  • Probably the best county museum I have seen. Rich with history and great pride. I couldn't be more impressed. Very well worth the time for visitors and locals. I spent 1 1/2 hours in there.
  • You definitely. Want too go if you like history
