  • Beautiful open-air square for family and friends to hang out. Also many fun bars around with college students and locals mingling.
  • We've been outside on the square many times and never knew the inside of the courthouse was a museum. We enjoyed all three floors and their artifacts. We ended the tour with a molding clay activity near the children's play store.
