Quite a nice little collection of Civil War weapons and artifacts. The amazing thing is that one person collected it. We enjoyed just looking around.

Very nice owner/docent. Lots of guns, swords, ammunition and pictures. Plan on about an hour. Best was the original pictures of generals--both north and south.

If you love War Between the States relics and artifacts then you''ll be in 7th Heaven! This private collection is better than many national parks in terms of quality and quantity. Not to be missed!

I feel this collection is a national treasure....More
