Small house full of historical value. Takes about 15 minuets to go through but well worth the visit. Don’t miss the love seat in the living room.

This is a reminder of life during the late 1800's where railroad robberies were a major issue and criminals rule the west. It is interesting to learn about America's most famous criminal.
