  • A great little place to get a slice of the local area history including wartime, during the creation of Snow's Cut, and more recent developments. Not a big place, you'd be pressed to spend a whole hour here, but it's a nice stop that I recommend. They also have presentations every month that delve deeper on a specific topic.
