    * On Friday, July 22, 1994, the museum was opened in our first location down Walnut Street (then 13 S. Walnut, thanks to Robert  Poindexter.) I remember that cousins George and Harold Slade jokingly stated that maybe we should have been embarrassed. We had only a few items for display in our history museum.
