Field Trip #3


This isn't so much a field trip, as I was invited out by the Adams Memorial Public Library in Latrobe, PA - but I would say that it turned into one. Because little did I know - I was headed to the hometown of Mr. Rodgers. The library has an impressive collection of old Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood merchandise from the 1960's and 1970's and another display of Mr. Rodgers' childhood puppets and high school yearbook. Tarah the librarian was nice enough to even drive me to Mr. Rodgers' original neighborhood and I saw his childhood home. Someone else live there now. How odd must that be?

Here are a few of the things that I saw.

Old merchandise:




And old possessions of Mr. Rodgers' that was donated by his family.
