  • * Early in 1994, a small group of people interested in this community and history agreed to establish a museum. I encouraged one of our local historians, the late George Slade, to write a column to promote the museum. George composed, I typed the column for him, named it “Museum Musings,” and submitted it to The Cynthiana Democrat for publication. This column first appeared in the paper on March 31, 1994. Thanks to the newspaper staff and to the community for their faithfulness to this column and to the museum. Martha Shropshire Barnes.
