  • * 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.
