The Wabaunsee County Economic Development currently operates out of this
native limestone building. A. E. Forinash was a master craftsman, stone mason and cabinetmaker. 
He was one of the stone masons who did much of the stone work on this building.
This fine stone building was at one time a bawdy saloon of the early days and then served
as a formal, dignified bank. The large arched wine cellar beneath it is still preserved 
in its old, original state.

Artist: Angelina Zimmerman
Virginia Olsen Zimmerman wrote the following history of this quilt pattern.
The double wedding ring quilt was made by my grandma (Mrs. Carl Moss) 
of Junction City. Then given to my mother (Mrs. Helena Olsen) of Alta Vista.
Because my bed was smaller than a regular quilt size when I got married it
became mine. The complete bedroom set. The quilt was originally given to my
mother in 1930 as her wedding gift.

They came in wagon, cars, pickups, with buckets, cream cans, and even cooking utensils, anything that would hold water!
