This museum is small, but full of interesting information and a very knowledgable guide. Small children will enjoy seeing the wagon and jail.

This is a great stop to learn about the Modac's. Captain Jack is buried there along with three of his colleagues for killing Canby. The out buildings were very interesting to look through as they are all that is left from the original fort.
