  • Very fun to visit all the shops. The columbus day weekend is their big country fair craft weekend and alot of fun. 
  • Nice museum somewhat related to General Grant, but also related to the Civil War - Nice displays and some are interactive. $20 entry fee, but I felt like I was donating to the museum more than paying admittance. There is a short (10 minute) holographic presentation from General Grant and his Wife, and then after that you are on your own. Can get through the museum in an hour or two depending on what peaks your interest. There is an actual mine shaft that you can peer down into - which is very cool. There is also a small gift shop for souvenirs.
  • Very nice collection, great staff, reasonable price :)
