Visit to the Historical Museum

The Crittenden County Genealogy Society took a trip to the Historical Museum at 124 East Bellville St. for their program this past Saturday.  

Left to right: Steve Eskew, Doyle Polk, Brenda Underdown, Dot Kunnecke, Fay Carol Crider and Don Foster. 

The Museum is full of interesting items and displays all pertaining to our local history.  Behind the group is a small section of our Military Display, with uniforms, pictures, and other military items donated by family members of the veterans.

The old Lamb Loom is to the right of the group.  It was donated to the Museum by the Dean family.  The Loom used to be located at Deanwood and the Dean family used it to weave many items.

In another room of the Museum, Fay Carol Crider, Doyle Polk and Dot Kunnecke checked out the many items located there. 

Dot is checking out the old hair permament machine that looks somewhat like an item of torture for the person getting their hair curled.

One will always find something of interest at the Museum.  It is open from Wed.-Sat. 10:00 -3:00.
