Enjoyed visiting. Some interesting antique items and old photos in the house, and antique carriages, hearses, and other things in the building out back. The latter building is to be remodeled or replaced as I understand it, which might give better opportunity to view those vehicles at a later time. Across the street is the largest Log Cabin I have visited, with really impressive size rooms. Volunteers were present to answer questions.
