Current Exhibit: "Lest We Forget" Military Display

Portrait of Soldiers

"The 'Lest We Forget' display will bring before your eyes the history and stories of those we are indebted to for that freedom.  From the Civil War story of Governor Upham and others, to Afghanistan, you will discover the willingness of our men to serve."

Renovations and additions of additional museum areas are ongoing. One new exhibit we are nearing completion of is the construction of a replica of the first log cabin built in 1872 by Louis Rivers. We also have allocated additional space to complete our military exhibits.
