Love history? Great - because the USA certainly has a fascinating one! Part of that history can be explored in the Stuntsman County Memorial Museum, which honors those famous and very important pioneer days - are you ready to explore too?
The museum is actually located in the Lutz Mansion, which was built all the way back in 1907. It was built by a very talented lumber man, so each room has it's own amazing theme to it.
You can explore the parlor, or the music room, or perhaps the library then the military room. Each room features a number of artifacts that will let you understand the history of the area better. There are hand-built models of actual Jamestown buildings, to instruments, gun, and lots of fascinating artifacts.
