Otter Creek Academy

Wayne County Historical Museum – Fall 2016

The historical museum in Wayne County sparks interest in the past as girls tour the exhibits. They are intrigued with the “air conditioning” provided for the original hotel (which now houses the museum) by a cave under the building.  The toy section is of special interest as one of the tour guides, who is in her 90’s, demonstrated a “push wheel” and old “stilts”.  A pretend ride in the stage coach is always fun and the girls enjoy learning about early days of school at the one room school.  Viewing items from years past sparks many questions about how things worked “back then”.
