Collecting artifacts and the history of people, places or things are my favorite hobbies. Ancestry and collections of photos, memorabilia and stories go hand in hand. Enjoy!

The Colonel doesn't live here anymore!
Exit 55 Antiques in Fergus Falls, Mn is another example of redesigning an old building for use as an antique shop. The former Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant has proven to be a perfect spot. Of course, location, location, location has something to do with our constant traffic. People come in who remember when they used to order Colonel Sanders to go or to eat in. A little paint inside, siding outside and a new roof were part of the rehab that took place. Customers are always amazed how much stuff can be arranged in a not so big space. A huge mall, we're not, but just right for those travelers who like to stop and shop for a while and then head out on I 94. We often see them coming and going to whatever their destination.
