This zany twenty-room museum of curiosities houses three two-headed calves, 20,000 arrowheads, antique guns, and mammoth bones. The stuccoed, six-story frame tower supposedly gives a view of six states. The museum walls are of local fieldstone and concrete several feet thick. Although the cafe, theater, and roof-top dance pavilion are gone, a second owner has kept this homemade roadside attraction open as a museum.
