This is the place to go. Great history and exhibits to see. Music Venue is very unique and down home. It is way off the beaten path, but make your way there if possible.

We attended a Saturday night concert and the old time mountain music experience was superb. There was record heat that day and with no A/C it was warm inside. Recommend that you check their website before coming to confirm the band, time and admission charges.
