Museum of Measurement and Time

This is a great little "museum" with owners that are the sweetest couple you will ever meet. They will personally tour you through their lifetime collection and answer every question you have. There are hundreds and hundreds of clocks, 1,400 salt-and-pepper sets, and much more. This was an unplanned surprise.

[Thom Wilkins, 11/28/2018]

Retirees Johnny and Edith Ingram say that their museum is all about "measurement," which includes time, surveying equipment, and the proper amounts of salt and pepper.
