Stopped in here before visiting the station. The docent was friendly and quite knowledgeable. Lot of local history. You can roam at your leisure and the docent would pop in now and then to check on you. Free, but donations accepted.

While this is not a huge museum, we found it quite fascinating to visit. It was FREE (but donations were accepted). There was a friendly volunteer who walked us through the entire museum and told us lots of cool information. Very worth our time!

The building(the former courthouse, ca. 1900) is undergoing extensive renovations to return it to it original lustre. In the meantime, there are some very interesting exhibits to view, especially from the Kelly Tire Company.
