We have a wonderful very short excursion on our last day here, about 1/2 mile up the road to the Parhump Valley Museum. We left here at 9am when they opened and were back home by 10:30, perfect. A very nice one with lots of displays and history of the area, and it is FREE, we like free stuff to do. The lady here gave us quite a nice background of Parhump and was very helpful.
