The gentleman at the Visitors center recommended this museum and as it was just up the street from the Civil War Medicine Museum, I decided to give it a try. It is located in a historic home and has exhibits that highlight the house and the history of the county through the ages. The ladies who greeted me were super friendly and willing to answer my strange questions. Definitely worth a stop. Also had this awesome quilt off the entry way.

As a life long resident of the county, embarrassed to say I haven't stopped in before. The historical offering and artifacts are diverse and most interesting. In spite of being familiar with county history, I learned much more. It takes a good hour to thoroughly tour. Would highly recommend.

Some interesting artifacts and quite a few good interpretive panels The house itself is interesting for its having been used as a home for orphaned girls for many years.
