  • Late on a Saturday, someone let us in to peruse and browse. I love small town museums, and this one really delivered! I appreciated the hospitality and deference that we were shown. Had a great visit and even got some paper dolls and recipes. It is, afterall, the home of sliced bread. I was disappointed that for all the wonderful and thought provoking exhibits, they didn't include anything regarding the fact that the building was once a "home for girls." We all know what that mean. There were a lot of military uniforms and placards, but those girls must have had stories of their own. Regardless, it was a great visit and we were graciously given a visit on an off day. Well worth it! No fee, but please donate!
  • Very nice variety of displays and historical items. The soda fountain was pristine, the military uniforms were neat, the jail was interesting, the drive through movie display was facinating, cool indian artifacts, some fossils, and realistic displays of several antique furniture and home items. Plus, friendly and knowledgeable staff.
