The Tupper museum is a cool look into the past with a lot of well-preserved country store items. I didn't have time to play the scavenger hunt game that they had available, but I think it would have been fun to do. In the back...More

This general store should be visited by everyone. Old folks to remember and youngsters to see how it used to be.. The docent, Elaine, a local lady, was wonderful and really made this stop exceptional.

Tupper Museum has all the original contents of a store from the 40's. Also has a collection of handmade Coushatta pine needle baskets from the 40's. Fabulous! Worth a stop.

Small museum with lots of pre-1940s items. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The attached telephone museum was very interesting. If you go, don't miss the mural - it changes views as you walk past it!

This museum had way more things to look at than I expected. Plan to spend time here, not jut walk through in 15 minutes. This would be a great place to bring kids since it is very educational and gives an accurate description of life...More
