This was part of my family reunion activities for the day and I am so glad I did not skip it. This visit was awesome to say the least. Mr. Hadley was amusing and very informative. This museum is loaded. Love it!

The thousands of photos, letters and objects assembled by Mr. Jack Hadley effectively convey a story needing to be told in a comfortable, warm and intimate environment. This museum is obviously a labor of love for Mr. Hadley, a sincere, gracious and proud man. We...More
