  • I went there because it was recommended by Google maps I spend there around 10 minutes all in all nothing much to see it's may be worrh if you drive by but don't go extra their it is nothing special except maybe if you know the full history is at some excitement but since I didn't know anything about it was not a big deal but of course this is just my own honest opinion
