Our favorite place to see when walking around the neighborhood. Local treasures that make you feel warm and comfortable. Old train depot original to our town. Residents are considerate of items that interest locals and our visitors

We stopped here to get information about the town. Enjoyed the model trains and doll collection. Lots of brochures and even free newspapers. The lady was very friendly and helpful. Take the time to visit and make a donation.
