This small town venue has quite interesting and thought provoking displays of local artifacts spanning several decades, from Victorian life to Hollywood. Yes, the prison history is well represented. Totally worth the swing off the freeway to make a visit.

It was a small museum, yet, it managed to tell the story of it's history and inhabitants well. I found a disturbing display of hanging nooses, yet it was part of the town's history. Great old pictures and items.

Really enjoyed the variety of things we saw. Reminded me of some of the things that I grew up with. We're very pleased with the help we received regarding a specific interest we had. We were given a folder of very interesting information .
