      Visit the turn of the century in Escanaba

      For a step back in time, you may want to visit the Antique Village and Agricultural Museum this summer at the U.P. State Fairgrounds in Escanaba.

      The museum features artifacts from a long gone era, including a piano, baby carriage and high chair from the early 1900s. You'll also find an old time village featuring a barber shop, a blacksmith shop and a turn of the century schoolhouse.

      "We have all kinds of exhibits, mostly from the agricultural area in times gone by," said Museum Curator Robert Willis. "We have typewriters here dating back to before the 1900s."

      There are about 200,000 items on display which includes car memorabilia, old carriages and other artifacts. The museum will be open Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1 to 4 p.m. starting on May 15.
