For those of you who appreciate kitsch, the ultimate, if overpriced, attraction to seek out in these parts is the John Brown Wax Museum. A somewhat imbalanced albeit brave zealot, Brown led an ill-conceived slave rebellion here that helped spark the Civil War. The museum dedicated to his life and the event is laughably old-school, and worth a visit for all that; nothing says historical accuracy like scratchy vocals, jerky animatronics and a light-and-sound show that sounds like it was recorded some time around the late Cretaceous.
