Ivan Weir from Ontario, Canada stopped by the museum April 29, 2016. He was one of the few people who helped to restore the 1892 Gig located at the museum. The Gig was then purchased by Mr. Gene Perry who in turn donated it to the Crockett County Historical Society. A Gig is defined as a two wheeled vehicle, that was used with two people riding it facing towards the front.
Ivan caught our attention when he arrived to the museum. He was very interested in going up to our third floor and visiting our buggy room. He had quiet a bit of history on how this Gig ended up here at our local Museum and gave plenty of detail. We thanked him for stopping by and also thanked him for the work he put in to make such a wonderful Carriage ride many tourist enjoy seeing at or local museum.
