Very nice museum for a small town. Peggy Lee museum was very interesting and very well done. I would recommend it to anyone!
What a wonderful place. The 'double' museum (Railroad and Peggy Lee) was being staffed by two elderly volunteers. They took us under their wing and guided us through the small museum with 'behind the story' information on nearly everything in the two story building. I can't even remember if there was an official 'fee' but we made a large donation as this little place far exceeded many of the other museums that we paid good dollars to visit.
