Miscellaneous Memorabilia

Hanging on a wall is an unusual quilt made by the Ladies Aid Society of the United Methodist Church in 1898. It is made of 30 large blocks in red embroidery. Each block represents a business that was operational in that year, and the two active churches, the Congregational and United Methodist

Railroad Memorabilia
The old ticket counter and window from the Creighton Depot, is obvious upon entering the building. The old black board, used to post the train schedules, stands tall and narrow. An old suitcase, and silk umbrella are nearby, ready for travel

Two locked glass cabinets hold innumerable loaned and gifted items, which are either very valuable or fragile, e.g. a pink-luster Japanese tea set; some items from a cut glass collection; a 120 year-old doll, a shotgun from 1898; a Sioux Indian tomahawk collection from the 1890's etc. Displays in these cabinets may be changed from time to time.

The number of items, not easily classified, are many, from cigar boxes to gunny sacks used to man overalls, to a hand corn planter. There are old books, valuable volumes and magazines; a wire chicken catcher, photos of the early days in Creighton and Bazile Mills and cemetery plot plans, to name a few.

Not included in the display areas is a three ring note book containing biographical sketches of families who have lived in Creighton from early pioneer days to the present.

The information is submitted voluntarily by those families who want to preserve a bit of their heritage.
