Three Museums in One!
The National Road & Zane Grey Museum has three different exhibit areas dedicated to three subjects which have all played an important piece of our area’s history.
- The National Road – America’s first federally-funded highway which opened the doors to the west, also known as America’s first “Main Street”.
- Zane Grey – Locally born western author who wrote over 80 novels which also turned into 110 movies.
- Art Pottery, Ceramics and Tile – The area is sometimes known as the “Pottery Capital of the World” because of it’s rich clay deposits which resulted in multitudes of art pottery pieces and decorative tiles. Wonderful samples of those are on display in the center of the museum.
