An annual parade of “Old Iron” in Manning this year will include a bright blue, custom-built Winnebago that is filled with pieces of Iowa’s history. From Friday, June 28 through Sunday, June 30, the State Historical Society’s mobile museum will be open to the public for free self-guided tours. The 300-square-foot exhibition is called “Iowa History 101” and features Olympic medals, artifacts from Iowa astronaut, Peggy Whitson, a 1917 prototype of the state flag, the voice of Mike Wolf from American Pickers on select multimedia elements and much more. “This exhibition shares some of the essential stories that every Iowan should know about who we are and what we’ve achieved since Iowa became a state more than 170 years ago,” says Susan Kloewer, administrator of the State Historical Society of Iowa. “We’re delighted to bring this traveling exhibition to Manning, and we encourage all Iowans to learn about our state’s rich heritage.” The mobile museum will be parked near the Highway 141 and Main Street intersection. The hours of operation are: Friday, June 28 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, June 29 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.; and Sunday, June 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
