This museum is one of my favorites as though it is small, it is filled with history of the area galore and one leaves it knowing so much more about the people who lived here than before! My favorites of this museum are the items the people made for their families. The wedding clothing in particular though plain and every day looking to modern "us", is actually art in itself with the tiny hand stitch items and the fact that from the beginning of the construction of the pieces, love and patience was the wordo f the day. Each item was created from the bottom up and were obviously "labors of love" on the parts of the makers. Other items are displayed as well but I won't list them except it say that it is a definite step back into time to a place where simple ws the key and beauty came from love and hard labor. Check out this place...it is a gem in the rough and a museum not to be missed!

PROS: ..interesting history, items and artfacts galore
CONS: none
