We found the Heritage Museum to be a good local history museum. Maybe with a little to much focus on Military History. Most of the rest was very interesting. Free. Easy metered parking on the street.

We went into the courthouse to use the bathrooms, and stumbled upon this wonderful history museum. They had so many different interesting exhibits. We couldn't believe that this little town had so much to offer.
