Quaint replication of an old fashioned bar. Has restored ballroom upstairs with mural painted on ceiling. Rest of the rooms of the building showcase antiques. Also has an ice cream shop.

Yummy Cedar Crest ice cream in classic sundae dishes! A great place to stop on a warm afternoon. Lots of things to look at to learn more about the area. Stop in!

Very interactive local museum. Go here first to get the lay of the land in Two Rivers. Volunteer docents are helpful and nice. Ice cream is tasty.
