Although the displays are tucked into a small square footage, the switchback floor plan allows for a great deal of material to be seen and read. Good information about the nature and the local history which could appeal to all ages. The films are worth the time, and the gift shop had some unique items.

Glad to find this now in TA, this is one of the most personalized journies through the history of a small town through the years. There is a 15 minute DVD describing the town and artifacts held there. The docents love their town, are very proud of their collection and if you're really lucky Jeff Jensen will be there. If he is, please ask for a tour of the Military Room with him. He's put many hours, with his colleagues, memorializing local Veterans of wars. His personal knowledge really "takes you there". I thought the Communications room was great, excellent representations of the history of personal computers. Cameras of all sizes and ages. There are large leather pillows, hand made dulcimers, specialized tools crafted. All venues of work and trade are dealt with with great care. Every day items, Indian history, my camera battery went dead as I took 69 pictures in under two hours. Great place for a rainy day on the coast,
