Fun stuff for people of all ages. Informative and free museum with US Calvary and Indian Wars items, Native American bead work, costumes, Skookum dolls, and local historical items on display. A family photo opportunity at every turn!

The gift shop is massive and features hard to find and whimsical items, such as old-fashioned candy, wind chimes, Native American jewelery, blankets and a fascinating array of books regarding the Old West. Prices are reasonable.

Just a little sample of handmade collectibles!

And right across the street.....

One of the reasons it's hard to ignore Whiskey Creek Wood Fire Grill, is that the smell of barbecue can be detected more than a block away! It beckons to your stomach.... Come in!
Once inside you are immediately struck by the massive grill with all sorts of meats and veggies sizzling behind a glass window right at the front door. Starts the mouth watering before you even get to your table. A member of the waitstaff will seat you, if you can make your way through the Peanut shells on the floor. My kind of place!
The energy is high and people all around are licking their fingers. It's a little bit pricey but the food is fab! The St. Louis Baby Back Ribs just fall off the bone. The Rib Eye with a Peppercorn sauce is rich and flavorful. Choose from your favorite side dishes such as Mac and Cheese, moist Cornbread or a baked Sweet Potato smothered in Butter and Brown Sugar. All entrees come with a nice salad and your own loaf of homemade Marbled Rye bread that melts in your mouth.
