Visiting Circus World

circusworld1

Flora and Duffy recently vacationed to Midwest, visiting Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan.

One of their stops was to Baraboo, Wisconsin- home of AL Barnum of the Barnum and Bailey Circus.

They visited Circus World which included a marvelous museum of circus posters and memorabilia from old time circuses around the world. The absolute highlight of the visit was the several building collection of old-time circus wagons there. The collection includes over 250 wagons from many circuses. They ran into one of the long-time restorers of the wagons. He has been with Circus World for over 45 years. It was obvious as he spoke that he has a love for this work. He had a deep history about most of the wagons and spoke about the intricacies of finding and restoring original wagon parts and the detailed restorations they make- including one wagon with a huge amount of gold leaf restoration.

This was a visit of a lifetime!
