Nice place for a little history and relaxing. I especially like the Paniolo Hall of Fame since I own horses. We went to the Farmer's Market mid week and there was a variety of items for sale.

The mid week market has good local produce and if you get lucky florals. Always good plate lunch. Some plants. A variety of local crafts and photographers. Beautiful stop off for photographers.
