A wonderful elderly couple runs this museum. The wife will talk your ear off while the husband shakes his head. Worth a stop for sure!

A collection of over 40 horse-drawn carriages, plus sleighs, buggies, and historical artifacts. You can climb onto a three-spring wagon and dress up in period clothing. There's also a "talking horse." Several of the carriages were used in classic movies such as "Gone With the Wind."

The talking horse is a wireframe model, not the spawn of Mr. Ed.
