Simpler Times Museum

Museum in Allegheny National Forest

Less a museum than some guy's country warehouse full of weird stuff, this is still a fascinating peek into the psyche of a person who decided they really wanted to preserve a bunch of gas-station signs, farm implements, old cars, lumber equipment and similar memorabilia. One day, archaeologists will discover this spot and know they've hit a 20th-century mother lode. Call ahead: by the owner's own admission, the museum is open 'by chance.'
