To the Editor

During a recent visit to Richmond, my 12-year-old son and I had the pleasure of visiting the Ray County Museum. In fact, we visited twice during our stay.

I commend Linda Emley, the museum manager, on having such an extensive collection of historical artifacts.

The collection is theme-organized in 51 separate rooms based on the subject matter represented.

It offers looks into the history of Ray County and the surrounding area, ranging from the Civil War to items from Richmond High School from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s.

Ms. Emley is a gracious host who you can tell is committed to making the museum the best in the state.

I would encourage all to visit the museum, which is accepts donations but is free of charge.

Ms. Emley treated my son and I to a special upcoming military exhibit that will surprise all. The only way to see it is to come to the museum soon.
