Thousands of walk in visitors, students on class trips, and tourists to the area, are provided with discovery on each floor and at every turn. Our exhibits not only remind them of their past but also often answer family questions about your ancestors. For example, one family found baby pictures of momma that were thought to have been lost in a house fire many years ago.

Our Court document collection sometimes provides answers to family geneologists when a marriage or death in the late 1800's is suddenly discovered. Our 15,000 aftifacts will help you understand how your family survived many years of on the edge of hard times survival with exhibits of family kichens, old gas stations, local post offices and items that you thought you would never see again.

We help you discover. We help you understand. We educate children of all ages. Your visit to the Museum is a glimpse into your families daily life years back using the latest technology of large screen displays and recently crafted exhibits of trains, cars, the Trail of Tears, our military of the Civil War and WW1 and so much more.

The Museum does all this for the community and does it with donations.

Please help us with your giving. Thank you.
