Workday Wednesday: Jackson County Museums

   Getting a real glimpse of what working life in Jackson County can be hard. Most Luxembourgers were farmers - an occupation often not well-documented. Without diaries, letters, or some other documents, you can be left wondering what being a farmer actually meant. A few museums have worked to change that.
   In Bellevue, the Young Museum documents life in the early 1900s. A ten room house, it has been kept entirely period. The museum is open from May to October.
   I've already mentioned the St. Donatus Parish Museum. Take a look at the Luxembourg-American Cultural Society's detailed write-up for even more information.
    And you can always follow the trail created by National Historic Register buildings. There's a lot to see and learn!
