Housed in a former fire station, this small but informative museum is worth a visit. See the precursor to today's electric car, flip through an old Sears Roebucks catalog and see a variety of artifacts from yesteryear.

It tells you about the fruit growing past and has some interesting exhibits. It's not too big so it won't take too long to visit, and it's not open too much.
