Belhaven Memorial Museum

The Belhaven Memorial Museum is definitely a cool place to check out. It doesn't cost anything -- they just have a donation box up front. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere - but if you're visiting Bath or Washington it's not that far up the road. If you're into history, creepy stuff, or both, you ought to go. It's weird to think this stuff -- a double-headed pig, a human skeleton, a whale skull, etc. -- was in an old woman's house. It's not just babies in jars though; there are a lot of old artifacts that show how people lived back in the day.

The guy working there was very knowledgeable and I learned some stuff from him.

Belhaven Memorial Museum

My friend and I took a small road trip to Belhaven to visit the museum. It was well worth it. At first it looked like just an antique store (room full of old stuff) but then we went through and looked at everything.

The man who worked there walked through with us and told us stories about all the different items. My favorite was about the mutant cat that roamed around intimidating dogs and such. There was a jar with the claws in it. The whole museum was filled with crazy things like that. It was soooooo much fun!

You should go visit... really, that man gets lonely.

Freak Exhibit

I was the only customer at the Belhaven Memorial Museum and the curator, Arthur, walked me through the exhibits and gave me lots of details and stories about each. I think he gets kinda lonely up there... Belhaven is really in the middle of nowhere.... but it's worth the trip just to see the 20-pound tumor and the dual-snouted pig.
