They had a nice quilt display.
I was very interested in the underground railroad quilt display telling the story of how quilts were used to help runaway slaves...
Many years ago the museum recreated some of the old shops that used to line the street of our town.
You walk through it as though you were walking downtown.
I bet the millinery was quite the popular store for the well-dressed ladies of the era.
Outside they have moved actual buildings and reconstructed them. We enjoyed this one-room school house that was in use until 1961.
DH enjoyed the old bank.
I thought of Patti from Missouri when I saw this blacksmith display. Patti's husband is a very talented blacksmith.
After explaining it all to us, she looked up at me and said how familiar I looked. Then asked when I graduated...two years before she did. When I told her my maiden name, she figured it out. She went to school with my sister, Delynn.
The museum has an new quarry exhibit where you can search for fossils. DH found the fossil in the last picture.
We are always attending festivals, etc. in other places. It was fun to attend a little event in our own town for a change.
