Law books sit neatly on shelves defying the passing of years.

They remind Don Ryan of being 14 and blowing dust off the books at his family's law office. The Ryan law office had a lengthy history in Brainerd. His great-grandfather Michael Ryan opened the law practice in 1903 downtown in the First National Bank building on South Sixth and Front streets.

That legal legacy is now a few blocks away, part of a new display at the Crow Wing County Historic Society Museum. Don Ryan, Crow Wing County attorney, donated the office furniture including the wooden desk and narrow drawer plat book and map cabinet. There are photos, letterhead, trial exhibits, even a spittoon. Together they recapture a vintage piece of small town Americana with a main street fixture in the law office and note a family legacy spanning 92 years and four generations.
