House of Oddities and Curious Goods

Located in picturesque downtown Elizabethtown, this funky stop has more than Dog-boy and Alligator-man. Check out the Giant and original art! Proprietor is very nice.

Familiar sights from the closed Gettysburg Dime Museum have found their way to a free oddities museum, art gallery, and curious goods store under one roof on the square in Elizabethtown. It's good to see Edgar the Alligator Man again!
