  • I almost missed this place. I was admiring the building and realized at the last second that it was a museum. Very interesting place. Our guide Amanda showed us around and explained the history. Great stop for a history buff or kids wanting to learn history.
  • Awesome old stage coach stop. Cant wait to go back for a candlelit tour. They have several events throughout the year including getting to eat some food from the cook house which my son loved.
