A small museum which tells the story of the town and the surrounding area. Some decent exhibits. Enjoyed the exhibits on war brides who came to the area after meeting their husbands during WWII.

This museum was a happy surprise, filled with many historical items and facts. One that stands out was an early machine for curling women's hair--quite a scary prospect. We were shown about by the museum's curator who was incredibly knowledgeable. We even met the mayor,...More
