When we pulled in to the large parking lot of the Adams County Historical Society (ACHS) the kids were excited to see the little town that had been created by the old buildings. Set back from the older buildings is a newer one that houses the main museum and information center.

When we walked into the Info Center we were greeted by a Volunteer who offered to take us on a walk through the other buildings. It seems they have most of the buildings locked on most days so you require a guide to take you through. First we walked through the very informative museum. There were many displays with detailed placards explainings how they fit into the history of the area. They have an area set up like an old parlor, a beauty salon, dentist office. There is a section dedicated to rocks from the area. Most of the museum is hands-off though there were a few things the kids could touch.

Our tour of the buildings included a one-room schoolhouse (the kids had fun sitting in the desks and writing on their slates while our tour guide gave us some information on how the school would have been run), an old gas station, and a beautiful old house that had been moved to the site from a neighboring town.

There was another large museum building where we saw beautiful old quilts, tea sets and memorabilia. There was an old fashioned scale that the kids got to weigh themselves on.

There was also a blacksmith shop but the tourguide did not have a key to that. It is only open when the blacksmith is there.

Back in the info center there was a little store where we were able to buy some interesting historical books.

The Museum accepts donations but didn't have a set price to visit otherwise.

PROS: Small and Easy to Visit in a Short Time, Informative Staff
CONS:
