Would you care for a glass of lemonade and a little conversation? A visit to our small town and its museum is something like a visit to your Grandmother's home and her home town. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Enjoy the porch swing. Step inside the front door and it's a little like entering a time machine, like traveling back 100 year to a simpler time. A time of one room schools, the country store, the kitchen garden.
