This is a gem: small and sparkly. The museum is well organized. The background information is nicely presented, with large type, great graphics and pertinent information. The Peggy Lee room is excellent.

It is restored to its original state, and has a professional interpretation done of the history of the area, and how the Midland Railroad got its start, until it was retired in the 1970's. Also the upstairs is the previous home... More
