Here is the story of an American hero worth learning about! A man that didn’t have a bad bone in his body! They did a nice job in acquiring some of his personal belongings to share! Learn about him also as a person

Though a bit confusing to find using my WAZE Navigation App, once I did arrive on campus, a nice gentleman gave me directions to the museum. What an awesome exhibit! So many things invented by this master of the peanut!
