Arts & Museums
The Belhaven Memorial Museum is the remarkable collection of Eva Blount Way, an eccentric woman who loved to store things instead of throw them away. The exhibits are odd yet fascinating objects that give an insight to the life of Eva Way. Amongst them are a collection of 30,000 buttons from all over the world, period clothing, farm tools and china. Visiting the museum will take you back to the 19th-century and offer a glimpse of a woman's life in that era.
