Stroll through the Museum Store with gifts, local interest books and our in-house publications.
For researchers, our extensive Research Library and Archives have over 25,000 images, thousands of documents of early governmental records, and local family genealogy.
Educational programs are offered through the year, including an annual student art show, summer camp, and other creative and educational programs.
Take a moment to relax near our beautiful fountain. We are conveniently located at the corner of First and Mill street. Just look for the Red Caboose!
