What do you do on a Friday when you are between jobs? You offer to buff out an old wooden floor for free. We have the BEST business partners!! Thanks, Rod Magsam!

My family and I have been traveling to this museum for years! The young tour guide was excited and gave a great tour….

Certainly worth the $5 admission…The young lady who walked us through the bank was a high school student who volunteers at the museum, She did a better job as a storyteller relating the events than many adults… Trip Advisior

This is not your typical “any town” Historical Society Museum… Annie T. - Yelp
