As the days get warmer and brighter, our museum hours get longer and our genealogy services open all season long. We're excited to be open 5 days a week to offer free museum tours and interactive genealogy help to the best of our abilities. We have extensive records and information on many family names and are always looking to increase our collection so that everyone who comes through is able to find what they are
