Right Under Your Nose

I'm always surprised about the things that are right around the corner that you don't know about.  Apparently, since the late 80's the Montgomery County Heritage Museum has been dishing out some fantastic local history.  We were pleasantly greeted by a hostess offering us headphones for a full on tour of the little establishment.  We could see and touch parts of our county's history starting with the Native American's all the way to our present day.  You'll find out why Tamina Road is called Tamina Road; and that Willis used to be a huge tobacco plantation called Little Cuba.  There is even a totally hands on room that even the littlest of curious hands can touch.  That room is filled with actual pieces from history, set up as a general store.  There's a gift shop and friendly staff that are willing to answer questions and show you around.  It's a free tour, and I suggest that when you are passing by Candy Cane Park, that you take an hour and pull in to the museum instead.  Great things are truly right under our noses.
