The Lyons Country Store encourages our visitors to step back in time and explore a 1930 country store. It is one of the area's few exhibits that allows visitors to handle real, historic artifacts once found in general stores nearly a century ago. In our Country Store you can see how an old-fashioned cash register worked, listen to period music on a Victrola-like speaker, play a game of checkers on an old checkr board set atop a barrel, and see old toys and games that children enjoyed decades ago. The store is a tribute to Bob Lyons, an avid collector of historic memorabilia and a founder of the Museum back in 1982. Mr. Lyons discusses some of his favorite artifacts in the store, illuminating how life was a bit different many years ago.
