We made a short detour to check out the Bush family business. It had a nice museum with the history of the family business, which included a video and included a video and interactive exhibits. The food was very good at the cafe'. Best of all we got a free photo with Duke!

They have pies which looked tempting but we were stuffed. Friendly and fast... More

They serve country cooking, along with the samples of Bush's Baked Beans. There is a store and museum there where you can learn about the making of the Baked Beans and the family that started all of the Bush Brothers & Company.
