    They did a nice job. It was not fully open due to some water damage. I liked the gun room best. They have some nice stories of important events that occurred.

    My wife and I are looking forward to visiting the Sheriff's Museum today. The reason is that all I know about Sheriff's office and their duties is very little. Another reason for going is that my Uncle was Sheriff Ed Cunningham of Lake County, Ohio for 28 years and raised his family including two children over the County Jail so I am sure to find more interesting knowledge about this museum. Jim Enjoyed and stayed in the museum for over an hour. Found they were very helpful in pointing out interesting exhibits to us and how to be entertained by them. Very educational don't miss it. Jim
