Housed in a historic building that once served as a railway station, this museum contains artifacts from the area, many of which are from the Civil War era. But the main attraction is the two mummies - dubbed the "Mummies of the Insane." A result of one man's morbid project, these cadavers were once the denizens of an insane asylum. They found their afterlife with Graham Hamrick in 1888 who then effectively pickled them for posterity using methods of the ancient Egyptians. Since then, they've made the rounds across America and Europe and are looking just as good as the day they were embalmed.
