Prepare to enter our time machine at the Whipple Company Store & Museum and travel back to a world of creative curiosity. As you arrive to your travel destination, you exit the time machine slowly with great anticipation, Where are you? What are you about to discover?
Glancing around you notice your standing in an old run down room, a place from days gone by, possibly a laundry, looking off in the corner you see an old wash board, a metal tub, lye soap and a clothesline. The clothes hanging on the line resemble the past, the 1900’s. You do not want to look like a stranger from the future, so you put some of the clothing attire on, I.E. a hat,apron,perhaps those old gray overalls. You are now prepared and ready to spend the next 4 hours interacting with the events of that time. What will you discover about the early years of the 1900’s, what did they eat, how did they work, where did they sleep, and who will you meet? The excitement begins.
