While going through my old stuff, I found quite a few old brochures and other old items I'd collected over the years, and decided to scan them in for posterity. Now those of you who may be interested in these time capsules to attractions past can enjoy them as well!


The SS Milwaukee Clipper is a National Landmark by the US Parks service and a museum located on the lake shore of Muskego Michigan, along with a few other ships in the museum's collection. This brochure (oddly cropped by my scanner, apologies) is from about 2007.




That WordArt is exceptional.




Notice there isn't a website listed anywhere on this brochure. They do have a Wordpress site now though, which can be found HERE. Astonishingly, their prices haven't changed at all in more than a decade.

Today's entry is a 2007-ish brochure for Mackinac Island's "Haunted Theater".






The actual attraction was closed when I visited the island many, many years ago, but it is still operating as sort of a haunted house attraction today, and is still going strong. Both it's Yelp page and TripAdvisor reviews are very positive.


Their website can be found HERE

No word on whether pets are still welcome.

Something I found among my old files, a "Free Child Admission" flier for Jeremy Allen's Grand Illusions magic show in the Wisconsin Dells, when it was at the CHula Vista Resort in 2009. After that, the show moved to it's own location in the Dells downtown area, where Jeremy Allen amused audiences with all sorts of tricks for the better part of a decade. Now, the Grand Illusions Theater's building is slated for demolition to make way for yet more redevelopment, which means the Grand Illusions are likely moving to an even "grander" home in the future.

This was a really (like ridiculously so) glossy card, and as such it's reflected all sorts of smudges onto the Epson V33 that aren't visible to the naked eye, and very well may just be on the scanners' glass too. Of all the scans, this was the "best" of the bunch, apologies I couldn't get it to scan in better.

Need to know what happened at the Bedford County Fair in 2005? You are in luck, I still had the brochure kicking around, and it's now been scanned in to carry on forever here on the Internet. Excellent.

While going through my old stuff, I've come across a pile of old brochures from years and years ago. I'm not sure what to do with them, so here they are- scanned in as best as I was able with my Epson V33 flatbed scanner.

A brochure picked up on a family trip to Michigan in 2007 from the "Weird Michigan Wax Museum" in St. Ignace, Michigan.





Alas, I couldn't find much more about this attraction than what you see here. According to THIS site, the place closed down sometime in 2011, and there's only a couple old Google reviews that don't tell too much about it. It seems all that's left of the place are a couple digital clippings, and this brochure.

Today's subject is a Bedford Pennsylvania Tourist Bureau classic, their bright neon brochures for "Gravity Hill", a free attraction on a rural road. It's a rather clever way to draw tourists off the main roads and off towards the hobby farms and other small-town attractions in Bedford county. I would expect the same brochures are still in use today.






The hill does have it's own website now HERE and the hill has a TripAdvisor page HERE

I've been to this one, and it's one of the hundreds of roads out there that due to terrain and vegetation, it appears that things like water or round items roll "uphill" in a rather clever optical illusion. There are a few roads like this in every state, though very few are as well advertised as this particular stretch of road in rural Pennsylvania.

Today's subject is the Thrasher Carriage Museum, a "hidden gem" in Frostburg Maryland, featuring horse drawn carriages of a variety of ages, sizes, and uses. Their website is HERE. Their TripAdvisor is HERE.

I actually visited this museum in 2005. It's located at the end of the train line for a scenic railway, and it's one of only a handful of things to do within walking distance. It's a nice little place, and it's well signed with information so anyone can understand and enjoy the exhibits for their historical value without needing to know much of anything going into it. I recommend it if you're in the area!

Todays entry is the Spook Cave Campground, a boat tour of a cave and a campground. The brochure was picked up in the summer of 2007.





The Spook Cave has since updated it's ghost, but the tours are still on according to their website.

Today's entry is the Crossroads Antique Mall, located outside Hershey Pennsylvania. This brochure was picked up by me in the summer of 2005, though we didn't visit then. As antique malls are sort of ubiquitous travel stops, they are of course still open and operating today: www.crossroadsantiques.com



The back is curiously empty with only a simple map. Not too bad as a black and white brochure goes.
