Muddy Misers - Zane Grey Exhibit

Restaurant/museum decorated with memorabilia of world famous writer Pearl "Zane" Grey. Lots of pictures of his world travels, pages from his book, "Riders of the Purple Sage." and several of his fishing rods.

Zane Grey is increasingly forgotten -- but he was America's first millionaire author, and many of his stories of the mythic Wild West became films and TV shows ("The Lone Ranger," "The Virginian"...). The National Road Zane Grey Museum is also in Zanesville, and another Zane Grey museum is in his former home in Lackawaxen, PA, the town where he is buried.
