Sunday morning saw us heading to the Bernard Historical Museum about thirty minutes away from us. While the museum grounds are small, they have seven or eight buildings clustered together and have made use of nearly all the the available space. They have a nice collection of everyday items - my favorite kind! :)
A replica kitchen was one of the first rooms we came across.
|'These cherries were canned in or before 1891.'|
|A lovely dress from the 19-teens or slightly before, I'm guessing.|
|A huge hat pin that must have been two inches across!|
|An amazingly plaid bustle dress! Even the bodice is a tiny plaid!|
|This was about a third of their collection of arrowheads.|
|A lovely carved wall pocket.|
Wall pockets were a handy way to keep your paper or magazines handy, yet off the floor and furniture. I think they sound very handy and I would love to find one!
|Radios from the 1930's - 1940's|
|Magazines showing the latest styles. I'll take one of everything please!|
|Different types of barbed wire.|
