  • I really enjoyed this little museum. They did not have much to show due to the size of the building, but the tour guide was very informative and sweet. It was nice that the tour guide gave us two flash lights to tour the second and third floor of the building that once was a prison, by our selves. It is a little creepy at first because there's this big, heavy, rusty, metal door that creeks very loudly, which the elderly lady closes behind you once you've stepped in. It it truly an interesting experience as a couple because of the spooky historical contents they have kept in this old prison. Oh, and definitely read the Historical Marker in front of the building- that too is a little funny and interesting when you begin to picture in your head what went on when this prison actually had prisoners in it at the time. I hope the owners do not change much of this building, I really enjoyed viewing the parts of the building that were kept original- it has character.
