There are so many exhibits at this museum. The local artist gallery is in constant rotation, and beautifully showcases a wide selection of artists.

The staff is friendly and well informed.
This is an amazing little museum of local heritage and has some cool old cars and a nice display of local animals. Wonderful exhibition in summer with old school house and home in back from 1800s.
