A great place to stop to understand the history of the town and people who have visited. Information about Doc Holiday. A visit by President Teddy Rosevelt and how people of the town made their living.

This is a small museum, actually located in an old home, but it's definitely worth your time. There's a lot of history in there, and the volunteer at the front desk was very knowledgeable.
