The Stan Kalinski Wildlife Collection
"Don't miss the fantastic exhibit of wildlife mountings, artifacts, saddles, horns, antlers, and furs from the Stan Kalinski Collection, handsomely displayed in a specially designed 30-foot by 70-foot room.
"You'll see the beautifully ornate and historical Buffalo Bill Cody bar which still sports a bullet hole and lead slug reminiscent of the wild west; the attractively mounted head of the buffalo butchered for a celebration honoring President Franklin D. Roosevelt during his visit here in the 1930's; the albino mule deer, the white fox, the extinct Audubon sheep, 20-foot snake skins, record size elk, and many more varieties of birds, mammals, and reptiles."
This county museum features a small collection of mounted game heads mixed with the usual county museum bric-a-brac, such as wagons, old bottles, and wedding gowns from local residents. Most notable are the series of two-headed calves seen above.
