My grandparents are buried in Mound Grove Cemetery and the family farm (purchased 1854) is a few miles outside of town, so as a kid we went every Decoration Day. We bought geraniums at the nursery, visted the graves, had a picnic in the park along the river, and visited the farm. My dad told us stories about life on the farm when he was a kid, going to town on Saturdays in the surrey, etc. He showed us the shallow place in the river where they could ford it. My grandfather was sponsored by the Presbyterian Church and left the farm to attend seminary in 1922. My great uncle had a patronage job at the courthouse all his life and cared for my great-grandmother. It's a great place to visit if you have roots there, but I'm not sure if there is much for visitors to do beside walking around the courthouse square.
There is a buffet restaurant on the southern edge of town that is pretty good.
