Free to go inside. Its nice and cool and they have fliers for it. The library nearby is the only public bathroom we were told. Visit the gift shop on Main street. Very sweet older lady owns it.

The garden and cemetery are well-maintained and absolutely gorgeous. Plus, some of the gravestones have interesting carvings and ghost stories behind them. Contact the Brown Library for more details.

This is a very old church which has been well maintained! Grave sites, two chapels and wonderful large oak trees! The service is also very nice. The wood work is beautiful!
