  • I loved this place. It started as a graduate school assignment bu became so much more! A very enlightened experience this became to me wow!! Thanks for being open to enrich society.
  • I have been wanting to go there for years to see what it was all about. I finally made it there thanks to my professor having us attend outing related to diversity and oppression. I truly enjoy gaining the knowledge of local history about disabled facilities, services and equipment. I will go back to take my girls. Great experience
