“From General Store to Department Store” represents an old-time General Store showing you what you might find at a turn of the century country store and in another display, features items from early day Department Stores. The Nichols Gallery displays Native American artifacts, including clothing, games, toys, a photo exhibit of building and competing 'reed boats', and old photos and drawings of tribal children at play.

We hope you enjoy our work.
