Before we visited my FIL during the Veteran's day, we decided to make a trip to the small museum in downtown Weirton. The place was so small but we learned a lot of things about the town through the pictures and demonstration by the man who work there. Too bad, taking pictures is strictly prohibited so I wasn't able to get any documentation hehehe.
Here is how the town looks like back in 1905. (Picture was taken from their website at weirtomuseum.com)
We also learned that there was an existing airport here in town back in 1950. My husband don't even know that it existed. This is airport is now a shopping plaza where big stores like KMart and other establishments are located.
Another interesting note is the former name of this town, it was formerly Holliday's Cove but then a rich guy who started/founded the steel mill changed it into Weirton. A woman named Elin Nummi who lived here in town was a TITANIC survivor. It is so nice to go to the museum as you learn a lot of things that you don't know. There are so many old stuff there that are preserved for future generations that is why taking photos are not allowed. The place was so small though, I hope that someday, they would find a big place for the museum because they have so many pictures to display but there is no place to put them.
Anyhow, we proceeded to Dad and we caught him raking leaves in the backyard so we took some pictures.
