History & The Arts

With changing exhibits and enthusiastic storytellers, you will definitely be returning again and again to our galleries and museums. Adventure seekers and history buffs will also be fascinated with the stories that are just under their feet. No amount of book-reading can give you the experience of witnessing the same sunrises or feeling the same breezes as those who lived during the Underground Railroad, the War of 1812, or any number of pioneer struggles. The Native American history is also evident as the discovery of arrowheads is quite frequent.
