A man came to visit me one day and asked a very good question.
What makes you a coal mining museum?
"If I removed all coal mining stuff from your building and placed it in a house down the street wouldn't that make it a coal mining museum?
So, it got me to thinking, what made this man think I was a coal mining museum? Why would he think that moving "stuff" would make me anything different than what I am..
Stories, collections,memories,education,geneology, history, facts, with a little fun and excitement thrown in, thats what I am about ..
Under my roof and within my exterior walls
some of the kindest ,intelligent, innocent,evil,entrepreneurial,wealthiest,poorest,softest,strongest,religious,
political,loving,educational, sneeky, orderly, slaved and hard working folks have entered and left their memory and mark.
I am a "People Museum".
What was that man thinkin?
