Whitehead Memorial Museum

This museum has several buildings to walk through with Old West period items. The grounds were packed full of exhibits. Hands-on activities, a Masonic cornerstone hidden behind a building, and the burial place of Judge Roy Bean and his son (creepy ). This place is also home to a pair of exotic birds and a huge nativity scene. It really has it all.

The Judge is thoughtfully buried next to a replica of his Jersey Lilly saloon.
