Classic treasures housed at museum

Wednesday, April 5, 2017
This nearly flawless 1928 Model A Ford, which can be viewed in the Implement Barn at the Barry County Museum, was originally owned by Barry County native Tommy E. Hall.†During his life he passed the vehicle onto his daughter and son-in-law, Bob and Peggy Hart of Rogers, Ark. Bob was very active in Arkansas car clubs and upon his death in 2005, the vehicle was parked at his home until 2012, when Peggy donated it to the museum. It is located in the museumís Implement barn and is a much-admired item for museum visitors, along with antique farming machinery, said Kathy White, museum director. The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
