I wanted to love this town, but there is too much construction, and not much is going on in this small town. The historic hotel is cool, but this town is one to just drive through.

This is a typical small American town. It has plenty of local history. Many streets here have no stop or yield signs at the intersection of streets. They expect people to respect others.

The city was beautiful, but not vibrant. We enjoyed our tour of the history center. It is somewhat small, but for $3 a person we felt they did a very nice job conveying the local history. The drive there Was nice as were the people...More

Start your tour with the movie at the visitors center to gain a better perspective of what you will see. Many great displays and dioramas set the tone. The trail is easy and enyoable.
