We tell our county history starting with the wolly mammoth tusk found in 2001, American Indian local story, continuing with the logging, John C. Greenway mining, the picture "GRACE", our local industry C.K. Blandin Paper Company, our own Barn Again Story and Francis Ethyl Gumm who became Judy Garland. We have a huge research center which houses over 100,000 photographs, local authors books, manuscript files and oral histories. End your tour in our own Little Gem's Gift Shop!
