Trip to Museum

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)
1905 View of Holliday's Cove
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.
1950 Weirton Airport
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.  
My 88 years old FIL, still active and strong.
Hubby exhibiting his goofy pose lol.
A shot of these two ornery burritos who were in the mood to pose  for us. 
Thanks everyone for dropping by.  If you are interested on how our town looks like, you might want to visit the url that I  provided above.  Thanks to your comments.

Yes, it's great to visit your local museum to know the history of your place. Your research confirmed that your place was very historical indeed. You and Rylie have that professional model poses in front of the camera. Sanay na sanay mag pose, lol. And John was his usual goofy self, lol. Even EJ has joined her sister in posing for your favorite photo. Thanks for the homey and historical post. God bless you all always.

Wherever we live, there is a heritage, a look to the past. In the Steubenville/Weirton area, most people think only of Dean Martin. Yet as you have found out, there is interesting history to Weirton. Nice!
