Worth a stop. The audio presentation was cool and it’s a great photo-op spot

Cute stop along Route 66! All in one spot you have the two cell jail, memorial for Rev Christian Christiansen who prevented construction of Nazi bombs, and a small former diner. Three pieces of history in one stop!

Nice piece of American history. There's a old diner next door (not functioning) - more of a museum piece, and a monument to "the man who saved the world from nuclear war" next to the jail.

Fun for a little photo op. Definitely worth the ten minute detour from 55.
