Fodor's Review

More like a cluttered antique superstore than a traditional museum, the county's treasure trove keeps a photo collection documenting the area's history, along with taxidermied animals, interesting rocks, old dental equipment, and all sorts of other bric-a-brac. There's a scale replica of the Liberty Bell (with the crack) made entirely of pinecones, a display of handmade quilts, and a whole lot of handmade placards exhibiting folksy Westernisms.
