It was a small museum, yet, it managed to tell the story of it's history and inhabitants well. I found a disturbing display of hanging nooses, yet it was part of the town's history. Great old pictures and items.

I was directed here by the docent at the McFarland State Historical Site. For a history nut it takes over an hour. I may have been here for two. Nice collection of 19th century firearms, farm implements, etc.
