The collection looks something like an expensive department store from an earlier century, dropped into our world through a time warp: finely-polished cabinet Gramophones, hand-cranked contraptions that play songs on wax cylinders, phonographs with giant multi-colored horns, player harmonicas, pianolas, harpanolas, and pianoharps. There are hundreds more. It is “Fib’s Collection of Record Proportions: 94 Years in the Making.” By Ian Cummings

August 11, 2013
At the old one-room Willow Spring Schoolhouse, ther may have just been one classroom to learn in, but there were lessons being taught everywhere, whether it was a teacher’s sportsmanship on the softball field, a nature lesson in an outhouse or an exercise in the human spirit when an older student would come over to help a younger one.
