In a quiet little lakeside area, we're told a man had a dream to open a museum honoring WWII with a sub-topic of the famed Ford Tri-Motor that once serviced the local islands and inhabitants - It has come to pass! My wife and I initially heard of the new museum just prior to it's opening last year. On returning through the area from the Toledo Navy game, we stopped to visit it; what a nice surprise ! Small, compact yet with a diversity of artifacts it made for a nice couple hour walk through. The primary item of interest is a restored B-25, "Georgie's Gal" as well as an "in-process" restoration of a Ford Tri-Motor. Other artifacts surprising were German WWII vehicles and weapons as well as U.S. counterparts. I'd recommend checking their schedule of events as during the summer months B-17 flight's are available as well as an aircraft "swap meet".
Also of note was an original "50's" diner relocated into the complex offering good food with a great runway view, the Tin Goose Diner! Named of course after the Ford Tri-Motor.
