It is a neat museum tucked away in the Beattyville. Recently added Veteran Hall is probably the most impressive section of the museum. There is a nice combination of graphics, like wartime posters and pictures and tangible objects, like sabres, badges and even uniforms. Each uniform has a name and was donated by that solders family– it really brings home the reality of war. The ancient Native American cultures are well presented along with the pioneering history of logging, railroad heritage, county’s agriculture and oil boom days. There is evidence of the local prison craftsmanship in the museum’s interior feature. Well worth a stop and conversation with the local folks.Great place to visit to get a visual impression of the history of the region.
