Welcome Center

We have a very active welcome center.  It’s open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. (except Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter).  The welcome center has an average of 8,000 to 10,000 visitors annually. 

It’s located on the east end of Main Street (202 East Main Street) in an old brick church, donated to the city. The building is over one hundred years old and completely restored with beautiful stain glass windows and a full functioning kitchen in the modern basement. 

It’s staffed mainly by volunteers from the community, and we are very lucky to have such good help.  We have requested local people who would like to bring crafts and antiques in for us to sell, with a 20% commission. That money is used to continue restoration and upkeep of this beautiful building.
