One of the great things about traveling in an RV is finding interesting places along the road you did not know existed. As we continued to travel south in Indiana on US 31, we saw a sign for the Fulton County Historical Society Museum. To be honest it did not look like much at first but there was a round barn and other buildings on the site, so we decided to stop and have a look. The displays in the building consists of materials donated by people living in the county and the city of Rochester, IN.
As you walk thru the inside exhibits, you quickly become aware of the things that the residents felt was worth preserving for future generations. In the various sections you can see what life was in the not so distant past.
The out buildings including an original round barn provide an insight into rural life from the late 1800’s on. There are a number of festivals and reenactments during the year.
If you on in the area, it is well worth the visit.
