  • I'm so glad I found this place while passing through Nevada. I very much enjoyed discovering the mountain of culture that's been spawned in this small town. The proprietor was incredibly friendly and eager to share the comprehensive history of the landmark. There are plenty of things to look at and souvenirs to buy! Make this a stop on your road trip.
