Real, unvarnished history is of the utmost importance

Everyone who has a chance should go to the Trigg County Museum. It’s still a work in progress and isn’t what it could be yet, but there’s already some interesting pieces and information to be had there.

It’s a small museum, but still interesting, and the building it’s in has a long history of its own, which the museum talks about.

Not every town has a museum. Indeed, many towns larger than Cadiz don’t have museums. A lot of towns this size or larger also don’t have art galleries or theater groups.

Back to my original point. It’s always interesting to learn how people in the past lived, what kinds of jobs they worked, that sort of thing. And the museum’s information about furnaces was particularly enlightening to me.

As I drove to the Nature Station a few weeks ago, I drove past what looked like the remains of a brick tower of some sort, and I had no idea at the time what it was. I learned from the museum that it had been a furnace in the 1800s.
