Donald Baldwin of Wellsville has many collections of historical and local interest. The Open House Event in conjunction with Wellsville NY's Sesqui-centennial celebration year afforded a chance for this webmaster to photograph a few of the items displayed by Don.
The first indication of something special appears as you are driving uphill on the Smith Hollow Road approaching the museum..........you spot the roofline of the barn/museum and the oil signs. You know you are coming to something special!
The hard work of Don and his family in creating this Museum of tools, engines, photos and oil-field related items as well as tools of timber days gone by, is a well-kept major secret of this area.
With his permission, I am publishing my photos of his open house of 9/22/2007.
