March is Women's History Month, and the museum was having an event where local actresses dressed up like important women in our city's history. One of the First Ladies was born here, so there's a whole exhibit just on her.
The actresses including a woman playing a slave who talked about almost being slip up from her family. Another woman played the first female firefighter here. Another one played a woman who help start a now nationwide business. There were five or six altogether.
|Biscuit is standing in front of the old entrance to |
the museum. I just think the building is so pretty.
|And this is the new entrance.|
|The first restaurant sit-in was here in 1960 by the guys in the big |
picture. If you lift the phone, you can hear people talking about it.
|This was on display in a room set up like |
an old pharmacy. Too bad they weren't real!
|This stuff was created here. I remember it being in blue jars when I was a kid.|
|Out behind the museum, there are a couple of buildings. |
The building behind Biscuit was a blacksmith shop.
Biscuit will visit lots of these types of places on school field trips, but I really like when we can go as a family and have good conversations about what we see. Jeff and I are both transplants here, but I keep trying to remind myself that this is Biscuit's hometown. So the history of this place is part of his history.
