I was suprised by how well done and put together everything was for a small town museum. It had nice displays and exhibits that touched on several decades of its history. Visitors have access to the first floor.

Lots of interesting and historical artifacts professionally displayed in a well organized setting. A special exhibit on golf would please even those not engaged in the sport.
