Wow! First off, what a beautiful old courthouse building. It's a great locale for a regional history museum. The exhibits were really professional and covered a wide variety of subjects. The kids especially loved getting to ride the "birdcage" elevator that you could see through!...More

Nice little place. Free that's what makes it worth your while. If you had to pay 10, 15 bucks, well that would be another story.
