“Neat stories, neat people!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2006

This unassuming little museum has a treasure trove of little stories that won't be apparent until you talk to the people inside. When you come in, look to your right and you will seee the Keppler Mural. Be sure to ask about it as it has an unbelievable history as to how it got her and wound up in three parts. Be sure to ask about the catwalk and the unique structure of the building from when it was an active post office and the post master had to be able to "spy" on employees. There is also the tragic story of the fire marshall in the portrait.
