PRIZED POSSESSIONS

Many Murray County people have favorite possessions that they prize above all others. Many are special because they are one-of-a-kind; others because of their age or value. Some are important for sentimental reasons. Makes no difference, this museum permits us to share our prized possessions with others without having to actually donate them to a museum. Those who own prized possessions that are extremely valuable but would prefer that the world not know that they have something so valuable in their home, can participate in this show-and-tell without revealing their identity. For example, a collector of Silver Dollars probably would feel safer not saying who he/she is or where they live.

ALL ITEMS IN THIS SECTION SHOULD BE UNUSUAL, OR OLD, OR INTERESTING ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY BE IN A MUSEUM. Please do NOT submit NEW guns, vehicles, etc.–only older, classics.
