One picture today, of a place that used to be Mom and my favorite place to shop for gifts.
This was built in 1800 by William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory and, later, President of the United States. In 1821, it became the Branham Tavern. Not long after we moved here, a local dentist bought it and turned it into a museum for his collection of historical-old toys and dental equipment.
That closed, and it reopened as Ozzie’s, the greatest shop EVER. It had everything, from clothes to dishes. She only bought a few of each item, so everybody in Corydon didn’t run around dressed in the same cool stuff. We bought a lot of presents there. It was fun to see how our friends’ eyes would light up when they saw an Ozzie’s bag.
Now it’s some kinda Corydon Historical Society museum. I haven’t had time to visit it yet, but I plan to do some home-town sightseeing in the spring, so I might have more doors from this site.
Thursday Doors is the brain-child of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, dig is pics, and click on the blue frog link to enter a world of doors.
