Well worth the trip to this sleepy small town. Loved every minute of our visit. Very informative docent and they even were very patient with our two-year old Mary.

Absolutely amazing place to visit. A true American hero. If you're within 50 or even 100 miles from here I recommend you take that detour and get here. Now the place is quaint, not alot of room, but definitely worth visiting.
