Forest Park Museum Curator Pete Malmberg brought a number of USOs (Unidentifiable Strange Objects) to puzzle the wits at the Perry Public Library Monday morning.
Malmberg’s selection of old-time farm artifacts included a cream can carrier, horse groomer, ox, mule and draft horse and veterinary tools. He also brought items from cold cases, veterans, trench art and U.S. Presidential memorabilia.
Attendees were also encouraged to bring their own USOs and curious things to share with the group. Among the oddities were arrowheads, a book holder and railroad message holder, Bigfoot track and strange minerals.
Fresh pumpkin and apple pie were served to the general delight of the dozen in attendance.
