Barrow museum a treasure trove of artifacts

It is a partly cloudy day as the sun shines through the trees, illuminating the sign for the Barrow County Museum. The warm afternoon air outside is soon replaced by the distinct odor of age walking into the building. The museum’s volunteer for the day, Shadie Thompson, smiles warmly at the arrival of guests to this little, mostly unknown gem located on West Athens Street behind the old county courthouse in Winder. Thompson has volunteered at the museum since she retired from teaching United States History in 2006.
