This was cool!
We were on our way back home yesterday from the Indian Mound and we saw a sign for an American Heritage Museum. We finished at the Mound earlier than we thought, so we decided to follow the signs. We came to a small brick building in the middle of a very small town and were not expecting what what inside.
IT WAS AWSOME!
This guy in that area had collected things his whole life a long time ago and after he died, his family gave it to the town to display. There were real stuffed animals, dinosaur fossils, DINOSAUR EGG FOSSILS, sea fossils, gemstones, pottery from 100's of years ago, Civil War stuff, African art, Indian stuff and tons more.
My favorite parts were the weaving loom and the polar bear.
MORE NOTES FROM MOM...
This place was definately a hidden gem. I don't remember ever seeing some of these things before. We would have never stopped if not for the signs along the road. I'm glad Jessica and I had time to explore Richmond County.
If you get some time, run down there. It was amazing.
