This is a neat place I have been going to since i was a child, The price was only $3.00 for adults and it was a nice place to see again, The old time jail and courthouse is interesting.

Showcases the past in a well-done manner. They have preserved the old courtroom and offices as well as sheriff's office and jail.

It as a little more money than I think it was worth...although I'm not that much of a museum person. There were some interesting things to see, but once through was plenty for me.
