Take a step into the past

Visit us to walk along our boardwalk of our early town and look through the old interior of buildings and stores, preserved as they once were. Then take a trip forward to the beginning of the electric era. Don't forget to check out our vast display of antique cars. There is something to interest everyone, why not come see for yourself?
