Fodor's Review

Though the city is undergoing some modern development, you can see the story of Benson's past at this free museum open Tuesday through Saturday (but closed in August). Exhibits include a re-creation of an old-fashioned grocery store, a horse-drawn schoolbus, quilts, and railroad paraphernalia. On Saturday morning, you'll find an outdoor artisan market here; during summer months, local farmers join in selling their fruit and vegetables.
