Great little museum with interesting items. We spent less than an hour. It was worth the donation. We are grateful for the volunteers willing to open this collection to the public. The quilts demonstrated marvelous workmanship. Great little western museum jam packed.

A very nice display with things well labeled. Well worth the stop. The lady working the museum was very friendly and shared a lot of information that was festinating.
