OTTAWA — If you want to see what it was like to milk cows a hundred years ago, plan to see a special exhibit at the Old Deport Museum in Ottawa. Called “From Cheese Factories to Dilly Bars,” it covers dairying in Franklin County from 1900 to 1929. Deb Barker with the Historical Society said a long time ago, milking a few cows was just one of several things a farmer did on his farm. The exhibit runs through Thanksgiving.
