You can spend a little or a lot of time here. Bring reading glasses if you're debating whether or not to do so...there's lots to learn.

Stories and artifacts, photos, etc. of GTC from its earliest days. Lots of family history too. Hard to believe they moved one house 2 or 3 times before it settled where it is now. Pick up some original local art while you are there.
