This former church built in 1884, features an insightful look into the making of textiles in the late 1800s and is home to turn-of-the-century blacksmith and carpentry tools, unique hand tools and a selection of items once used for daily domestic chores.  The textile exhibits cover the complete process of making linen from flax and blankets from wool.  You can even try carding, spinning and weaving on the antique looms while you are here.
