Stanley Museum: Steam Cars

Dedicated to the Stanley brothers, this museum holds memorabilia such as several steam cars, and original photography equipment that the brothers helped produce. In one of the cars sit two (unsettling) mannequins that represent the brothers. They were a gift from another Stanley museum that closed. One of the cars is open to visitors for pictures. The Stanley family is now known for their steam cleaners!
