This place does a good job covering the history of the area. I also got to see a blacksmith in action. The lady here was very energetic and knew a lot about the area. Good conversation. They also have lighthouse pass port stamps here.

We stopped here July 11th to get our lighthouse stamps for our Lighthouse Passport. We were able to get 4 stamps with a donation. The staff member manning the front desk was very helpful & very friendly!
