WINDOW INTO HISTORY WEDNESDAY

Beaded bags have been popular for centuries. Whether handcrafted or commercially produced, they have been in vogue in North America for well over 200 years and in Europe for much longer.

This bag was donated to the Patee House Museum and is beautifully handcrafted with many vibrant colored small beads. The inside material is leather and shows it was made in Germany. The bag also came with a small decorative pocket mirror.

August and September were busy months for our 2020 group from ι–’θ₯Ώε€§ε­¦/KansaiUniversity.

In August they finally got to do a live tour of Downtown Lawrence, including a tour of Waxman Candles. They took a trip to St. Joseph, Missouri and saw the Pony Express National Museum and the Patee House Museum & Jesse James Home. They visited the Kansas City Zoo and National World War I Museum. And, most importantly, they started fall semester classes,

In September they visited Grinter Farms to see the sunflowers, went to Worlds of Fun amusement park, and took a trip to Manhattan, Kansas to see the tall grass prairie and walk the Konza Prairie Nature Trail.

And that doesn't even include the numerous hours the students spent volunteering for local organizations!

I know people may laugh at me, but I think I experienced a haunting! I'm traveling St. Joseph, Missouri and I visited the Pataa House Museum yesterday. It was one of the finest luxury hotels during its time (pre civil war) and the headquarters for the Pony Express. The downstairs is the museum and the upstairs has been restored to give visitors a glimpse of what it was like to stay in an upscale hotel during the Old West and western expansion. It is a gorgeous stroll through time! I was walking the third floor corridor and peeking into the lovely rooms when I suddenly had a dizzy spell. I grabbed the doorframe to the adjacent room to steady myself. I attributed it to the heat, because of the noticeable temperature difference between the upstairs and downstairs. After I settled, I glanced into the room, and that is where I saw it. On the wall in the room is a plaque that stated that the tiny room was the living quarters of a long time worker of the hotel. He had a dizzy spell, fell off the balcony, and died. I didn't feel any hostile presence, but I found it rather odd to have a dizzy spell at that exact spot in the museum. Today I called the museum and told the clerk of my experience. The museum is not advertised as a haunted attraction, but she told me some visitors had reported cold spots, sounds, and other odd things. I don't know what happened to me at that moment, but it was odd. It was either temperature affect, or I'm a kook with a paranormal story. Regardless, the museum was a good educational and entertaining experience.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
