We laughed about the whole Lee Majors thing, but checking his filmography I realized we've seen him recently on one of our favorite TV shows. He played Burt's dad on "Raising Hope". Watch the clip from the episode Burt Mitzvah featuring Lee Majors at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7g-kBGXDjo
New season started November 15th but I haven't watched the episode yet, I'm sure it'll be great!
Just down the road from the museum was the Coal House. It was built in 1926 from 42 tons of coal.
Located in an outdoor display is some mining equipment from the 1960's.
On the same street were two interesting buildings on opposing corners. I have no idea what the "cutout" design is called or why it was built that way. I know in Chicago they bumped sections out overhanging the sidewalk to have more space while paying less taxes, but these buildings are purposely subtracting space.
Those two buildings were the exception to architecture in Middlesboro, and in nearby towns in general. As we travel around I am coming to realize how lucky we are in Wisconsin that we've taken such good care of our architectural heritage.
