KKK Gift Shop And Museum

This establishment is now closed for good.

KKK Gift Shop And Museum

The owner, Grand Master John Howard is super nice and really gives a great history behind the Klan. There's actually a lot more to it then what most presume. Worth the stop. Any race can go inside and receive the same respect from Mr. Howard.
