This interesting museum in the small town of Dayton VA just outside of Harrisonburg VA is well worth the visit. The films and exhibits which change periodically will introduce (or remind) you of the area's heritage starting from its beginnings right through present times. There is an emphasis on the area during the civil war where some surprising facts are displayed. An example: Lincoln's grandparents and father were natives of this area. The museum has large rooms displaying local arts and crafts and memorabilia. History buffs as well as those interested in tracing their roots in the Valley won't be disappointed in this hidden gem. Today's docent, who is a long time resident, was gracious and generous with her time. Do stop here and enjoy.
