  • What is there is interesting, but it is whitewashed southern history and living. No mention whatsoever of plantation life, slavery, etc. Civil war rememberences limited to weapons and medical implements. I know it is very controversial but they could have one small area dedicated to early African American life in the south.
  • Interesting items from historic times. Nice set up of an old cabin, old photos, dolls, furniture. Enjoyed the doll houses. Unfortunately, felt a little rushed as they were closing an hour ahead of regular closing hours, due to a catering event.
