"When it comes to winter travel, I find that there are two kinds people: those that hibernate and those that like to ski."

I promise there's a third category - those that don't want to go stir crazy. I have the prescription! Check our #FireplaceGetaways in Raystown Lake Region and grab you family or friends to plan a getaway!

Happy Labor Day from Isett Heritage Museum! We will be closed on Monday, September 2nd! However, we are open Saturday from 8am - 5pm and Sunday from 12pm - 5pm! The original Labor Day was a parade held by American workers to protest long workdays with low pay. Around 10,000 workers marched from New York’s city hall to a giant picnic at a park on September 5th, 1882. Many workers risked their jobs to participate that day, however, Labor Day did not become a nationally recognized holiday. President Grover Cleveland signed the bill to make Labor Day a national holiday on June 28th, 1894 because he wanted to end the Pullman Strike in Chicago because it was severely disrupting railway traffic.

We are preparing to put the signs out for the Riverview Recollections cemetery tour! We have been looking through our archives for photos, drawings, or signatures of some of the people on the tour. We found something for almost everyone including a bunch of signatures for Benjamin Elliot (one of the papers we found for him is pictured below). The original papers can be seen upstairs in building one. We are still looking for anything on Samuel Steel, Thomas Duncan Smith, and Susanna Eisenberg.
