We spent a couple of hours strolling through the fascinating museum. From its early pre-settler era to the current day. Photos, artifacts, film clips,music history and more. Worth the time!

This was a great place to visit. Lots of quaint shops, bakeries and candy stores. We went for a weekend and every place we stopped and ate was wonderful. Loved all the shops with all the old stuff, memories of the older days and Mayberry................Awesome

Small but interesting. Nice break from the heat of the day (90). We enjoyed the people that helped us as well.

A nice small museum that gives a good history from the Native Americans to modern day times. Learning about the granite was especially interesting.

This museum has a lot of interesting things to see. Many of them were a surprise to me, and I live here. Definitely worth a visit, but take your time or you will miss some really neat stuff.
