M is for Museum

My theme for #23 Round of ABC Wednesday:
Signs & Such of San Benito County, California

Luck Museum. Doesn't that sound wondrous? Imagine the paintings, sculptures, displays, and exhibits interpreting luck. That's something.

This is a real sign in San Juan Bautista, the town next door. The Luck Museum, run by the San Juan Bautista Historical Society, was once a gas station owned by Mr. Carl Martin Luck, who immigrated from Germany in 1890. More than 80 years later, Mr. Luck's daughter donated the building and grounds to the city, which today, in addition to the museum, includes a city park and the city library.  That was good fortune.

    1. I think you'd like the whole town of San Juan Bautista, Jackie. It was built around one of the original 21 Spanish missions in California.

    1. City history, which could be full of both. :-)

    2. History can be bloated and gassy.

      Delete
    3. That's for sure. I imagine today's events written up in history books.
