Museum Building


Opened in 1999, our museum incorporates a time

line and period exhibits.Before the official beginnings

 of county government there were Indians and squatters

occupying the land. . These gave way to a tide of Civil

 War veterans moving in to settle the land at the same

time the giant green pine timber harvest was taking

 place. Full-scale agriculture and tourism followed.

 The rich and varied experiences of settlers and

developers, scoundrels and criminals, heroes and back

breaking toil is told by relating their stories to specific

 individuals. Two furnished  period rooms dramatically

depict daily life long ago.
