January 26 marked the 40th anniversary year of the big blizzard of 1978. Our evening program will feature a new PowerPoint presentation of highlights of that truly major weather event. Those attending will be encouraged to share their favorite memories about the story that dominated our lives in Knox County for several weeks in early 1978.
In the 1940's the Albright family of Knox County harvested silk from golden spiders for use in bomb sights for the U. S. military. Centerburg teacher, Karen Allen, will share her in-depth research that began with her visit to our Museum in 2017.
