Catch Our Exhibits

Connect to local history through our various exhibits. We are constantly adding to and changing our displays as we acquire new objects and research new ideas. Every three months we also load up a car with some of our treasures and take to the road. We will travel to the public libraries around our area.

Tour When You Visit

Explore highlights of our collection through a variety of tours with our knowledgeable volunteers. Experience 3-D photos through our stereoscopic viewer, crank an old corn sheller, weave a few rows of a mini-rag rug. You don't have to be a kid to enjoy the opportunities to explore items in our collection. Tours are free so schedule one today!
