our open house on Saturday, May 17, more than two hundred people signed the
visitor’s book on arrival and I suspect quite a few more visitors came who
forgot to sign the book or didn’t see it.
We were very thrilled that so many visitors and friends came to see our
new addition and the renovation of the old museum. Some of our visitors were a group from the Moniteau County
Historical Society which made a special trip to Tuscumbia to be here for our
opening. We were quite delighted by all
the positive comments we heard of those touring the facility.
has gotten out we are receiving many more visitors than usual; for example, on
Memorial Day more than fifty visitors came through our museum. Many were from out of state, probably here
just for the Memorial Day holiday. More
than one hundred raffle tickets for our homemade quilts were sold that day
still in progress toward completing all our exhibits and displays with new
items and artifacts being placed in the museum daily. We are emphasizing Miller County people and history so quite
likely you will find information about some of your relatives of the past in
our museum. If you are in the area you
won’t be disappointed by coming to see us. Our visiting hours are ten a.m. to
four p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

other desserts beginning at 11:30 a.m. and ending at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday,

our guests the Joe Jeffries musical group which will play old time country
music during the event. So be sure to
mark this date on your calendar because this year not only will you have the
delicious homemade ice cream but in addition the opportunity to tour our new
