The old church building is attractive, but the collection is pretty small and the history wrightups range from moderately interesting to dull. The volunteer docent was friendly but not very knowledgeable.

What a great place and organization. The director, Allie Shell is a talented a bright young woman who brings an energy and vibrance to everything that happens there. Community oriented, and themed. You've got to take one of the walking tours of Milton.More
