  • We particularly enjoyed the videos of someone reading from old slave's diaries. Very well done. Not cheesy/touristy at all.  more »
  • If in the area, I highly recommend you go to this museum. We watched both films. Chatted with the docents. Looked at exhibits. Well done!  more »

  • I was impressed with the local history presented here. The museum is smaller than I thought, but there is a wealth of information. I liked the layout with the "church room" telling the story with the points of view from the local churches. There is a small "kids corner" with appropriate books and coloring sheets too.
  • Our guide was a wealth of knowledge, shared the local history. We were there a few hours reviewing the film, documents and exhibits. Our docent had a Genuine gift for sharing a horrific history, this site renews Faith in the true goodness of Humanity.
