Very nice museum. Had a guided tour by a very nice young lady. Quite knowledgeable and provided a couple 'nice to know' tidbits about the area. Admission was very reasonable and you don't regret paying it. Well worth the visit.

The museum was set up nicely to display the history of the area in terms of old pioneer ways. The building itself is quite interesting, dating back to the late 1880's.

Cluttered, neglected, disorganized. A few interesting displays; staff friendly enough but poorly trained, don't know much at all, try to be helpful but can't. Seriously in need of updating/modernizing.
