A really nice small town memorial to a great man. The museum has his boxing gloves and shoes. Tons of pictures and films showing his fights and stories. Nice lady who is informative and can answer all your questions.

This is a very nice little museum dedicated to the legendary boxer Jack Dempsey who was from there. It is just a few minutes off Hwy 285. Look for the statue of Dempsey on the right hand side. You can't miss it.
