Aberdeen Museum of History

We've been to Aberdeen countless times and had no idea this gem of a museum even existed. It was $5 for the whole family. It's on 3rd Street close to the high school in the old Armory building.

The Aberdeen Museum of History uses period furnishings from the town's pioneer days. It has photographs, as well as antique fire-fighting equipment, an old Model-T, and an exhibit about logging in the Aberdeen area. It also tells about the fire that happened in 1903, and how they fought it. My favorite part was learning about an old telegraph machine.
