Every Item Tells a Story

It’s been said that “every picture tells a story” but here at the Clarkston Heritage Museum we would amend that to “every ITEM has a story.” Some items have ordinary stories that speak of daily events common in every community. This isn’t one of those. This is a story that includes elements of surprise, mystery and a crazy coincidence. Click here to learn how a thin piece of paper came halfway across the country to become one of the Clarkston Heritage Museum’s most treasured artifacts. This is the first in a series by the CCHS and Community Video, LLC, to showcase the interesting stories and history behind some of our most unusual artifacts. We hope you enjoy it.
