Post Covid Bucket List: Famous Endings Museum

Last month’s post about the Life photograph from President Roosevelt’s death brought an unusual tip from a friend.

To understand what I’m about to say, click over to the first story and check out the picture.

Go ahead. I’ll wait…

Great picture, isn’t it?

My pal Tiffany saw the blog post and told me about a place with a connection to that picture. It’s called Toland- Herzig Famous Endings Museum. The Dover, Ohio museum is owned by a local funeral home and is dedicated to memorabilia from famous dead people – sometimes from their funerals. From Don Knotts to Princess Diana and Abraham Lincoln to Mickey Mantle, they have artifacts and autographs to represent all sorts of people.

My friend tells me they even have the accordion in that picture!

How cool is that? So now, I clearly have to go.

That part of Ohio is Amish Country and there’s a lot to see and do. I already have a short list of attractions in mind and am hoping this summer will take me there for a few days.
