Empty tables are good, that means everyone has left for Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday, on her "Off on my tangent" blog.
...and everyone is invited to Duluth.....
You may already know this place, and when you hear Duluth, Minnesota you may think of it. This is Spilt Rock Lighthouse just off Highway 61, northeast of Duluth.
Can you journey just 38 miles away from here? To the shore of Lake Superior, near Leif Erikson Park (Rose Garden) and a spot nestled quietly among College of St. Scholastica and University of Minnesota-Duluth? That's where my "K" destination begins.
and what could be better - it's a Free museum.....expect to be amazed.....
Sorry, by now all the Christmas decorations are gone. Meet a very wise Mr. Tree. After all, who doesn't need to read about things?
Especially important documents we've maybe only heard about.
Don't just take my word for the letter " K " and "KARPELES MANUSCRIPT LIBRARY MUSEUM
See for yourself....
If you can't slip away to Duluth, not even by ship, check out this link to Karpeles and view much of their collections right on your own computer. Maybe not as good as in person, but it's there at all times!
It's both educational and entertaining!
See, the U.S. Bill of Rights, the Emancipation Proclamation Amendment, Handel's Messiah, all on display in their original handwriting!
All fields of history, exploration, literature, science, music and art.
There's even a gas bill paid by Thomas Edison! Imagine that!
Have you heard of the "Olive Branch Petition?"....you can see it there.
A special grouping about Sigmund Freud is going on now and lasts through April 30, 2012.
Prepare to be renewed and bring those children too busy with Angry Birds and other video games....this place will unleash surprising things!
902 East 1st Street Duluth, Minnesota
So don't forget to check out other letter "K" posts just visit Jenny!
.....and no worries, Jenny only looks like this when our assignments aren't complete!
