Blasting Back at the Days Gone By Museum in Woodland, Delaware
Antique tractors and boats cover the concrete floor as old-time tools adorn the walls of Jack Knowles' sheds turned personal museum. Magazines and newspapers covered in plastic collect dust in this free, deep-country tribute to the unique culture of Southern Delaware. Homage to past shad-fishing glory fills one bulletin board and the history of this Nylon capital covers another; a daunting collection of lanterns slowly swing above with the low breeze that occasionally drifts through. Humidity runs high in the rooms lacking air condition making skin stick to everything and the authentic experience stick in the mind.
