    I am trying to find out when the home at the Fresno River Crossing and Road 415 burned down. I am hoping someone has some information. Thank You, Terri

    Hi Terri! Thanks for your post. Do you mind if I share your request for information on our Facebook page? That is where many more locals and local history buffs will see it, and we will be more likely to get information. We would love to hunt down the story for you!

    Back in the 1980’s, my family lived in the house next to what is now the museum. Our house was once a hotel and at the bottom of the hill on Hwy 41 was a gas station and bar. I was amazed to see that both have been torn down and the neighbor’s house is now the museum. Can you please tell me when our old house and the gas station/bar were torn down? When we lived there, a sweet old lady named Dolly still lived at the gas station/bar. I would love to know this if you have the information. I was bringing my daughter to the area and found it hard to see no house and many memories, but not able to show her. Thanks!
