The museum also sponsors and hosts numerous exciting and interesting events during the year, and has just finished constructing a 6,000 square foot visitor's center that is available to rent for any type of occasions. Take a daring step back into the 1870s, and let the sights, sounds and activities that were prevelant back then help you to understand more of that era, and the exciting hardy people that frequented these streets and shops so long ago. You could take an old fashioned wagon ride, or visit the humble abode of the town's first settler and founder, Darium Munger and be sure to stop at Marshall Murdock's house who would be credited with single handedly promoting the town and its growth through his newspaper. You can get an old drink called sarsaparilla in the saloon, or just wander around the town, looking into the various shops and stores that were around back then or just enjoy watching the many folks dressed up in western gear, looking as if they were going to some outlandish Halloween party that was themed about the old west. It is all here and waiting for you and your family to come and visit, spending some time learning about the history and heritage of this old western town, with so many things to do and see that you just might have to grab a small room at the local hotel. There are many interactive learning possibilities, that will tell you about the living history that is happening right in front of you, or watch one of the many historic reenactments that are put on just for your pleasure and visit. Their educational programs will help you to remember the history of the region and give you a better insight into the hard and dangerous times that these folks endured. There are a few significant exhibits that you just have to visit to get a better "feel" for the olden times and these include the hunter/trader area, the Old West immersion, industrial/business area, the 1880 DeVore farm, the residential street and the old drovers camp so that you can learn what hardships these young men had to endure to ride the range and herd cattle.
