  • Do support this little gem. Lots of photos and memorabilia from Old Bend... Definitely worth checking out and supporting. It is located in a lovely old building that was once a school  more »
  • Volunteer staff were very friendly and informative. Good displays and information on the history of the area, we quite liked the notice warning not to put a naked flame to the Edison electric light.  more »

  • My 2 hour visit was very interesting. Nice displays! I will definitely return with my reading glasses so I can better view photos. Pleasant staff. Parking was scant. Sidewalk was well maintained during snow days.
  • Spent a lot of time here. Those curious about the finer details of life in the early 20th century will appreciate every item here. The staff is well informed and very friendly. I forgot to sign the guest book! Next time.
