I’ve seen a few, um, odd museums in my time, including the National Yo-Yo Museum in Chico, Calif., where is on display a Yo-Yo about 4-feet tall. I swear! I would not lie about something like that.
But a museum to a crate?! In central Maine?!
OK, this crate might be something. Here’s the DownEast.com trivia question for today.
What is Lucky Lindy Lindbergh’s connection with Canaan?
The Lindbergh Crate Museum features the packing crate that held Lindbergh’s New York-to-Paris plane, The Spirit of St. Louis. Larry Ross’ private museum, on Easy Street, is built in, around, and about the crate. Admittance is by appointment only.
By the way, Canaan is on Maine Route 23 and U.S. Route 2 in Somerset County not too far from Skowhegan. Here’s a link to a bit more about the museum: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/6168 . There seems to be more there than just a crate.
