  • Museum Musings

    * It is beautiful Autumn - it is the season to quote “A pictur’ that no painter has the colorin’ to mock - When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock.”
    * These well known ‘punkin’ lines were written by the Indiana poet James Whitcomb Riley (1807-1892). We have some books related to James Whitcomb Riley in one of the Raggedy Ann and Andy displays in the museum.
