  • Early pioneer families
  • Beach/road  auto racing

The Museum offers a research facility with old city directories and documents as well as an extensive photographic and postcard collection.

Housed in the former 1910 Merchants Bank building, the two-story interior walls are graced with hand-painted murals depicting area scenes, and highlighted by Beaux Arts styling of stained glass windows and lighting. The building is a destination in itself. You don't want to miss it.
