The Les Vilda Presidential Museum and Library

Les is a really smart and entertaining gentleman. The Presidential Museum is worth stopping at on your way into Wilber. Also be sure to stop at other local businesses for Czech food and Pivo (beer)!

[Bonsue, 02/14/2014]

It's an outhouse. Les Vilda is a life-long resident of Wilber with a long, white beard. He likes to pose for photos dressed as Uncle Sam. He ran for President as the standard-bearer for the B.E.E.R. Party in 2008 (unsuccessfully), so in 2010 he opened his museum and library, expecting to win in 2012. Didn't happen, but Les remains hopeful. Hygiene alert: the outhouse is not a functioning outhouse.
