This place has come a long way. I still wish they had the End of the Trail statue in a bigger room so that we could stand afar and admire. It's my favorite. Thanks so much for going to the extended effort of getting this restored. Also, you added someone who is a poet from California, so THANK YOU for that. You think of everything. Blessings to you. It's such a gem!! Love you all and I'll be back soon.
I took my childcare center here for a field trip and we loved it sooo much. They had activities for the children and it was so educational. The museum had a lot of historical and informational 4hings and the interactive exhibits were so much fun!
