  • Really enjoyed our visit to this FREE museum. Super friendly staff, very cool area about Carrie (Little House books) and local history. Especially loved going upstairs (note: NO elevator) to see the old school rooms and our kid 'played school', which he really liked (there are slates, old books, etc. Note: bring chalk if you want to write anything, as there are just little bits here and there). Gift shop now accepts credit cards (had seen a post elsewhere indicating it was cash only).
  • Nice little free museum detailing the local history of Keystone. There’s 2 school rooms upstairs which are really well maintained. As it’s not on the main strip in the old town it wasn’t busy at all
