I didn't think to take pictures of my favorite things in the library - one being a huge old dictionary that was probably 10-12 inches thick. One of the kids said, "Whoa! This dictionary has WAY more words in it than ours does!" :) My other favorite thing was the old Sears Roebuck and Montgomery Ward catalogs. They were fun to look through. I told my kids about when I was young. My ritual was to make a very detailed list from every catalog we received - complete with page number, item number, name of item, and price - for my Christmas list. At that time, the catalogs had all the toys in the back of the catalog, and they would send them to you sometime around Thanksgiving. I must have spent hours pouring over every item in those catalogs. Good memories!
I hate that this picture turned out blurry. A couple years ago when one of the bars refinished the outside of their building, they uncovered this siding that has a bunch of old local brands on it. They wanted to preserve it, so it was moved to the museum. It's pretty cool.
The sheepherder's wagon was the highlight of the trip for my boys.
I was surprised by how much room there really is in one of these. Not sure I'm quite ready to move in though.
This just cracked me up. The five year old figured out how to open the window and see outside.
