  • I didn’t know what to expect from this place. Amazingly I think we spent over a hour there. A lot on President Reagan and the Indians.  more »
  • It is free of charge but I would definitely recommend to leave a donation. It is a must stop when you in Dixon IL. Start your visit here if not at Chamber of Commerce in downtown. Open all seasons !  more »
