Set in the former McCabe College building, this museum offers lots of local artifacts, nicely presented. We're museum buffs, and still we got some fascinating new information that we didn't know before.

We had visited the museum in the past and stopped in to have a look at some of their exhibits. We were pleasantly surprised to see that they had completely redone and updated all the exhibits. Very nice look at the history of the town.
