A great place to spend a Friday or Saturday afternoon is the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum, right in my hometown. I am proud to say that I played a very small part in making this museum happen when I was a reporter/photographer for the local newspaper years ago. I remember many interviews and photos of the blossoming project. I decided to share the museum with my sister, who was visiting from out-of-town.
The photo above is of a matte-board replica of Cynthiana around 1900.
The craftmanship of this model is spectacular.
There are so many great things that have either been donated or loaned to the museum. The objects are from every era of the county.
No tribute to the history of Harrison County would be complete without some tobacco, the crop that sustained this town for many years.
This dollhouse, which is visible from the street, is remarkable.
