I attended a paranormal conference that was being held in this school. At night we came back and did an overnight paranormal investigation and I was overwhelmed by all the energy within these walls.

A gorgeous building overlooking the valley. Tons of information inside. Kids can dress up and you can sit at one of the old desks. A good stop during a VC visit. I recommend

Are you ready for school? A very interesting place to visit. All kinds of history about the towns history can be viewed here as well as what the children learned. A must see.

Great sweet lady met us at entry and gave us lots of background about the school. Tour was only $5 each and so interesting to wander the rooms and look at exhibits. Highly recommended.
