As a child, I watched this place fall into disrepair. Love that they rehabbed it and made it a wonderful place to visit. Be sure to go at Christmas time and see the decorations by the local clubs.

This is where we watched the 2017 total eclipse of the sun. The staff were FRIENDLY and HELPFUL! The place was beautiful, clean, and unique. The "museum" was not open, but the "light show" was FANTASTIC!!
