I loved the military room with an exceptional display on General Upton of the Civil War. Also the American Indian's artifacts and pictures are great. I really enjoyed the visit and will go again.

Our area is full of history. History that should and is being shared at the Holland Land Office in Batavia, NY. Stop in even if you live in the local area. It will be worth your time.
