MUSEUM OF WAYNE COUNTY HISTORY
The Haunted History Trail of NYS came by the museum for a tour from Larry Ann Evans. Here's what they said:
"The Museum of Wayne County (Finger Lakes region/Wayne County) has a split personality of sorts. Set in an 1850s house, the two-story museum and large backyard barn are filled with amazing artifacts that show how people lived a hundred years ago. The Lyons, NY museum is truly worth the visit and gives visitors an intimate immersion with the past. History buffs will love this place. This is where things get a little darker…"
A NIGHT IN THE SLAMMER; A DAY IN THE CLINK
Here you can enjoy a scene from a past performance of “A Night in the Slammer; a Day in the Clink.” This play was written by Anne Salerno and Larry Ann Evans and was performed at the museum for many years. The scene here is between Big Ed Kelly (Matthew Owen), James McCormick (Stuart Smart), and Fred Schultz (Alex Calvo).
