This place is packed with so many items/artifacts. The historical stories are so interesting about the earlier people in this area. Learned a lot. If you like history you should stop here if you have the time

Visiting the Historical Society was the highlight of my trip. The ladies were so helpful and very knowledgeable about the history of Crescent City. I was quite surprised by the amount of items they had on display and thoroughly enjoyed the trip back through time.
