Life is for sure full of great surprises and one I'm very thankful for tonight is a new friend that has agreed to help me run the museum whenever I have to keep my focus on real estate. I've been lucky enough to have my Mom feeling better lately and she's been a huge support for my entire life & now I'm very happy to introduce my friend, assistant and museum tour guide Elizabeth Holowasko, (minister, writer & poet) who has an amazing heart, a wonderful disposition on life, loves history and our area and will be there to greet you and give a great tour on her days at the museum!! Please welcome Elizabeth and if you haven't already done so, make it a point to stop by and see for yourself why she's loving this new part of her life!!

The sounds and smells of the steam engines have remained in our memories for many decades!! What a thrill it was to board these little House of David made trains from 1908-1974 and make that famous mile long ride back over the giant valley and over the creaking wooden train trestle and arrive in the one-if-a-kind arched top south depot!! Many of these wonders still survive and are not only being ran again at the old House of David Park but are also operating in Findlay Ohio and on display in museums around the country, including the new museum here in St. Joe!!
