The museum is not very big, but filled with lots of stuff - from World War I & II to Civil Wars, from sewing machines to trains, from quilt to uniforms, to name a few. There are books, pictures, flyers, and the actual antiques, it went on and on. There is also a very impressive model train, which from the... 更多
Where do I start? This place is crammed full of all sorts of Americana that you just don't see anymore, let alone in one place. Items from the Civil War, WWI & WWII, old phone switchboards, beds, dressers, bells from the courthouse; you name it, it's squirreled away here somewhere. There is even an old poster of Dan Patch; think... 更多

Tons of stuff for every interest inside the museum - Native American artifacts, furniture, handcrafts, newspapers, photos, train memorabilia -- basically, all aspects of life in a rural VA town. No charge.
