If you are ever near Ottawa Kansas make sure to stop at the local Library.

They have a lot of history on the company and are only a few blocks from the old factory buildings. There is also a small museum that has a display and additional information on the company.

I also went to an antique mall there and picked up some other aper material.


Nice clean little town and friendly people.

Did anyone get any good deals? Was there a good crowd? Not sure why anyone would schedule an auction four days before Christmas.

I thought there was a good crowd although I think most of the people there were just spectators. I really enjoyed talking to George about his engines.
