Popped in and were warmly greeted by the volunteers. A small donation was required and we were given a little tour also.

The staff were super friendly, interested in us and our trip. We found the courthouse very interesting and love to see these icons preserved. The books on the tables were so interesting and informative, they had to kick us out (nicely of course)

Well presented & informative attraction. Worth the gold coin donation (which helps the looking after the building) to have a look at what it was like when in use.

at the outside is shows not much historic value, so we didnot bother to go in. It is just a house, nothing special at all it seems.
