A quick tour will acquaint you with local historical detail. A stop off here on your way on to other sites in town will add perspective. A walking tour brochure is available either at the museum or at the visitors center next door.

Beautifully trained docents that have first-hand knowledge about everything here. Almost, but not too much information for one day. A few magnificent hand-quilted quilts if that turns you on!
