Typical artifacts from a family in this area. Guided tour unavailable due to staff shortage. Could not view inside buildings on self-guided tour. Videos did not work in the mueseum.

This is a good one time visit opportunity to see things from our past heritage. There are special activities at times that may draw you back. A small cave on the property is a cool thing for a family with younger children to explore.

Nice piece of local history. Not an entire trip destination but interesting. I wasn't able to be there for the presentation. I'm sure that would have raised my review. Very friendly and informative hosts.
