There is a lot to see in this small museum. There is history of the area and artifacts that you won't see anywhere else. Go see it!

This is interesting as it tells the history of the area, and it is packed with local memoribilia. The people that run this museum keep limited hous espeacially during the off season, so be prewarned that you might want to check the hours before you make the drive
