Fruitcake. 100+ year-old Fruitcake, Senior Bacon

The cake and bacon are still there, and the museum guide was hilarious and very knowledgeable.

Fruitcake. 100+ year-old Fruitcake, Senior Bacon

Both the fruitcake and the bacon are still there and are attended by an older gentleman who was funny and full of local knowledge. A fun stop.

Old side of bacon. 66 Year Old Slab of Bacon

The 66-year-old slab of bacon sits in the room adjacent to the 104-year-old fruitcake in the Hurricane Valley Heritage Museum. The fruitcake I can understand, but it's hard to understand how someone could forget bacon!

Fruitcake. 100+ Year Old Fruitcake

The now 104-year-old fruitcake is still there. Yikes. It sits in a glass cake server among a whole host of pioneer-era artifacts. Great little museum. Don't miss the 66-year-old slab of bacon in the other room!

100-year-old Pioneer Fruitcake

The 100-year-old Pioneer Fruitcake is still there! Apparently it was the top of someone's wedding cake, which was saved....
