There is a fossil hunting site outside in the back. Fun for all ages. Several hiking paths as well as paved walkways showcase historic structures. Could easily spend the afternoon taking it all in. 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.
