A superb small museum with costumed docents leading you through historic period buildings. The buildings have been thoughtfully restored and the docents are interesting and informative. The are also interesting contemporary art and historic displays in the modern museum building.

This is a fantastic and free museum. It is located near the state capitol building, with plenty of parking. I would suggest putting this on your must-see list. Both the grounds and building are well-preserved.
