"Sophia is a quaint little town that has many unique shops and buildings in its historic region. Plan on spending an hour or two to walk along these streets full of history and be sure to engage the local as they have a wealth of knowledge."
We didn't see any quaint little shops but the downtown is quite nice:

In the park by the railroad tracks was a Korean Conflict memorial. One soldier was mentioned by name.
