There are gun displays, the gallows, jail, and the courtroom on the second floor allows you to sit and reflect on the Wild West. There is a gift shop that has a... More

The court house is an excellent local museum displaying lots of local history. If you go there plan on spending plenty of time to see everything. There are a lot of areas to go through.

While the 'reenactment' gunffight that we attended ($8 adult, $6 kids) in one of the staged saloons was good, we had hoped to see the a high noon gunfight in the streets for free. The shooting gallery for the kids was GREAT!

The court house is a decent western and cattleman's museum for the area. There is a hangman's gallow out back that is a recreation of the original. The cost goes towards maintaining the museum.

Learned a lot about the history of the area from the exhibits. They were set up in an interesting fashion and easy to read and follow. It was a two story building but there was a set-up on the main floor for those unable to navigate the stairs to view it on a screen and listen with a head-set.
