The Holmes Medical Museum is located above the drug store in Baldwin County’s first hospital, which served the community from 1936-1958. Many of the items on display are the original medical artifacts including surgical instruments, operating room machinery and a human skeleton. The interior of the museum is like a time capsule remaining practically unchanged from the time it served as the area’s first hospital. This fascinating museum will definitely take you back in time.

It was on to the secret city today.  I left Nashville around 10 this morning.

I missed my turn and turned around in this hospital parking lot.

The next time I stopped was in a rest area.

There were great animal footprints in the concrete base

for this awesome sundial.

Finally, I arrived at my destination, Starr‘s studio/home.

I visited there for a while and then checked in to the Doubletree Hotel.
