Friendly helpful staff. Wonderful special events especially Sept Pratie Oaten and December Moreston by Candlelight. more »
I liked the archives especially. Archivist was obviously very passionate about her work and knowledgeable about what was on hand. The museum proper has a few exhibits focused mostly on local history..... more »
