History Displays

We have the Kinsman Rexall Pharmacy 1957 soda fountain, which is still fully functional, the phone booth, which dates to when the store opened in the 1930’s, the Double Kay Nut machine.

We have the popcorn machine from the Kinsman Theater, which dates back to the ’30s.  When the theater closed Virgil bought it and used it at his auction barn.  I need to put it back together, so we can use it.  There is the adding machine from the hardware store in this building.  I think it dates back to the 20’s

There are poster size pictures of Kinsman Fairground racetrack and the natural amphitheater(a Kettle hole) where the Moody revival meetings were held in the 1890’s.

On display are my grandpa Sutton’s potato bagger, scoop and apple stacker and picture of his store in Verona VA..  Also, my grandpa Saltzmann’s corn planter, some of his butcher tools and a picture of his store in Newton Falls from 100 years ago.
