  • Worth the drive over to this island to visit the fishing pier and walk the grounds. It's a beautiful area.

  • AMERICAN HISTORY AT ITS FINEST. VERY POPULAR DESTINATION FOR MANY. I'M BLESSED TO LIVE CLOSE BY TO GO AND SEE HISTORY STILL STANDING, INCLUDING THE JAIL WHICH IS SAID TO BE HAUNTED! IT IS RATHER CREEPY AT TIMES!
  • Nice, but in a residential area and not open. The plus side is it is very easy to take photos of it.
