This photo, taken from the front yard of the museum on Dec. 5, 2015, shows construction going on in Sims Park, part of the complete renovation of the park. This is a shade structure that will cover a play area.
An interesting item donated to the museum by Edward and Patti Nixon in 2015, not yet put on display. It’s a chair from the old Moon Lake Lodge. Moon Lake Gardens and Dude Ranch was big before World War II. The lodge was burned down by an arsonist in 1996.
Below: a hand-tinted post card showing Moon Lake Lodge with the same style chairs.
