  • Worth a visit. The tour guide really knows her information. I learned a lot.
  • This was an awesome find. I didnt even know this was here but came across it exploring town. It was well organized and surreal being in a president's childhood hoom.
  • Good place to get to know more about a daily that has done so much to serve this amazing country.
