$4 - very small home, but still lots of history with interesting information. Takes about 30 minutes or less to get through.

We enjoyed seeing this house as a piece of St. Joe history. The man working at the museum was knowledgeable and we enjoyed chatting with him. There's also an audio recording overhead which is helpful and informative.
