One of things we enjoy while traveling is visiting museums in small-town America. We realize not all travelers share our interest in small museums, but we nearly always find them fun and educational. They are mostly staffed by dedicated volunteers, usually seniors, who go out of their way to make our visits enjoyable. It is apparent they appreciate our interest in a place they consider an important part of their lives.

We have discovered during decades of travel that nearly every community, however small, has a story worth telling. It may be a tale about an individual who once resided there or a long ago battle fought nearby. Perhaps it is a bridge with a rich history or a house where something of consequence took place. Unique museums, monuments, stores and people offer insight about a community’s character and history. Discovering these stories makes travel more enjoyable.
