Groups of all ages are invited to come
Visit, Explore, Discover, and be
inspired by our treasured history.
History steps out of the pages of textbooks
for students, helping them gain valuable
perspective; adults appreciate and learn
about generations that preceded them; 
mature adults see artifacts that stir
fond memories and conversation.
Consider pairing a group visit
with a meal at one of  the area's
resturants, or with a visit to another
local attraction and make a
day of it!
