Such a welcoming center with beautiful flowers, really amazing historical relics and a gift shop. My favorite was the old school house they have onsite but they also have an old home, general store and blacksmith shop. The overlook is beautiful and they have a nice kids area as well. I highly recommend it!

Stopped in to pick up some byway literature and wound up spending over an hour looking away all of the displays. This is quite an amazing display of various topics in history. Covers education, agriculture, Freemasonry, wars, etc. A small display of native American artists also available. We enjoyed our visit.

Everyone was very nice and informative. They were so patient with a field trip of rowdy 5th graders. :)
