Ceremonial Masonic Sword


M1917 copy of the British Brodie helmet


Rusted Bowie Knife(?) that looks like it was dug up out of the ground(?)


Mammoth Tusk dug up out of the ground in Baylor county

Ever wondered why train robbers and other bandits had a hell of a time getting into safes?


The front of a 1890's safe


A good picture of the first doors thickness. Didn't have my tape measure, but it looked to be at least six inches thick.


The less thicker second inner safe door


The backside of the second safe's door locking mechanism


The inside and main part of what most 19th century robbers were after, the loot that was once inside safe's much like this one.




Native American corn grinding tools dug up put of the soil of Baylor county

These are just a sampling of 80+ pictures i had taken at the small town museum i had visited today, the city in which i currently live. Other pictures i have are: An Army Gunnery Sergeant's uniform, a West Point cadet's uniform,  A Japanese 25 caliber 30/06 bolt action rifle with bayonet, A 1903 Springfield bolt action rifle from World War 1, A 18th century revolutionary war replica man's coat styled after the British with corresponding tri-corn hat, A Japanese doll from the 2nd World War era or possibly from the American occupation period, saddle types from the American west period, both male and female, Medical instruments from the pioneer days as well as every day accoutrements of prairie life in the mid to late 19th century and into the early part of the 20th century.

Certainly isn't the Metropolitan Museum of New York, nor is it the London British Museum. And most certainly not the Louvre. Still it was a fun way to waste 2-3 hours surrounding myself with a little bit of history. Hope you all enjoyed this little sampling.

Note: Yes, i know the time stamp is incorrect. I didn't catch it until i got home and transferred the pictures to my computer for editing.
