You discover in parts of an old school, a nice collection of various object from the early 1900s to the 1960s. It's a little bric to brac, but what makes the charm of the visit.

Minimal fee to enter - I would recommend this place to everyone (as a must see if you have time) and kids above age 6 should find it interesting as well - even more fun for them is the playground and train outside. Each room of the old 1903 historical building that was once a school (and has a ton of history all by itself) is covered from floor to ceiling with town memorabilia. There is so much to see but many times I didn’t know what I was looking at, exactly. If they offer tours of the rooms from an historian I would recommend it. On the outside they have an old playground, a real Pacific Railroad caboose which you can walk through (some pics attached) and other large historic items like a plane, wagons and an old fire truck. We loved this place!
