If you want to see a historical site this is a good one. Doesn't take much time but worth the stop. If the militia are there it's an added bonus

Nice job done recently to restore the site. Informative, even kids could be interested. Go during the Holidays when the decos are a nice addition. Always good to see & hear the local history!
