Olde Fan Museum (The)
Children and adults will love this collection. Rows and rows of antique fans are everywhere. Here you will see the first electric ceiling fan dated at about 1885. One display shows that rubber blades were once tried as an option to metal. The oldest fans in the museum come with a cast-iron base and motor housing covered with Art Deco. Perhaps the oddest fan on display consists of a tall metal bar with a thin crosspiece at the top and a paddle at the end of each crosspiece. The fan was to be placed in the center of the table at mealtime. As it revolved, it would assure flies did not bother you during your meal. This collection presents a great opportunity to show a little piece of oddball history to your children and is enjoyable to adults as well. Admission is free.
