While visiting here, talk to the hosts. They are so informed and charming. If you're not afraid to engage them, which they love, you will very much enjoy your visit here.

This is one of those "cool little places" in the area that add so much charm to a visit here. The Historians are very interesting and proud of the History behind Laurel.

I am a docent at the Laurel Museum. There are facts and exhibits about Laurel during the civil war. The museum is located in an old mill workers stone house. Laurel was a mill town and this house housed four families. There is also a film about Laurel through the years and a small gift shop.
