Indoor Walk-through Village

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.85″ text_font=”||||||||” text_font_size=”16px” text_line_height=”1.8em” animation_direction=”left”]Like the classic movie, the indoor Walk-through Village in the museum Annex transports you back to small-town America, where Main Street was lined with shops and the checkerboard was always set up in the dry goods store, ready for a game.

The first stop on the left is the Apothecary, complete with carved statue outside. Inside is a soda fountain with wooden stools, a cigar counter and toiletries counter. Behind a wood and frosted glass partition, the druggist formulated medicines at the counter using ingredients from small glass bottles lining the shelves of the back wall.

Around the corner is the Tonsorial Parlor (haircuts – 25 cents, shave 15 cents), featuring a tin bath. Across the street is the law office with furnishings from the family firm of James Parks, Peyton Parks and James A. Parks of Clinton. The dry good store next to it offers pickles and crackers in barrels, coffee beans and flour in sacks, sewing supplies and household utensils. A one-person post office booth in the corner of the store provided a place to send and receive mail and buy stamps.

Step next door to the store and you are in the Farmers Bank of Blairstown, from which the interior was moved. The curved wooden counter is topped glass dividers and lined with ornate metal grillwork. The surfaces of the bump-out transaction bays are marble. Through swinging doors behind the counter are three teller stations, two desks, a floor safe and a wall safe. A small harness and leather goods shop completes the businesses in the Village.

For a close-up look at the interior of an American home in pre-World War I, go to the middle room of the Anheuser-Busch Building. The lady’s parlor features a square grand piano, decoratively painted parlor safe and an Edison phonograph. Low chairs and an Eastlake rocker provided a place to sit and do needlework. The foot warmer, filled with coals, was for inside or carriage use. Next to the parlor is the kitchen with dry sink, cook stove and kerosene ceiling lamp. The table and shelves hold utensils used in food preparation. Hand-cranked butter churns and a treadle sewing machine are among the labor-saving devices for household use. The child’s bedroom has antique dolls and doll buggies, toys, clothing, a fold-up child’s bed and a traveling trunk. The other bedroom features furniture from the home of Sallie and James Avery, who were married in Clinton in 1865 and lived on Second Street.
