Fabulous location for a Vintage Base Ball match or two! Hope to revisit the Museum when we play there next season. The staff was very pleasant and gave us tired Ballists the leftover soda (pop to folks in the north) after their free-admission day was successfully concluded.
This was a charming museum! At first, it doesn't seem like much to look at, but inside is a pleasant surprise, with lots of memorabilia, and the tank was a bonus! The nice gentleman who was working on the tank has so much information! We're so glad we took the time to stop here.
