Franklin County 1910's Garage Museum




This was a not to far location to see from our Gunn Creek Campground, one of the fellow campers was having a birthday so we stopped into Joe's Pizza & Pasta, 117 E. Main St. Benton, IL 62812, Phone: (618) 438-0563. I wish, wish, WISH I had taken a picture or 2 of the pizzas we did have ... each couple got a different pizza and that gave us all a chance to try so many of their amazing PIZZAS. They were DELICIOUS!!! greek, hawaiian, taco, stuffed, veggie, SO MANY OPTIONS, you will love it promise!!!

So some one recommended going to see this museum. It is a FREE museum, however they would appreciate a donation. I believe one of the campers had seen a bit about it in the travel brochure. I think??! Any who we stopped on by. The lady there was so fun and she told us amazing story (history of this place!!!) Address: 511 N Main St, Benton, IL 62812, Hours: Open ⋅ Closes 6PM, Phone: (618) 438-2121. I love that I got the water tower in this 1st shot, I didn't realize that until I got home and was going through my pics ... Well DONE! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.
