This page will feature the artifacts that are part of the permanent collection of the Historical Society.
We have some great artifacts that have been collected over the past 40 years, unfortunately, some of them are not identifiable nor can it be determined how they were used. Hopefully, you will be willing to help with this.

Made of Oak and constructed by Mr. Jim Benson of Wendell. The draw pulls out revealing the History of the Fullerton & Watson General Store in Wendell, Idaho.
This cash register was operated in the Fullerton & Watson General Store in 1916. Made of Brass and other metal, the machine is in good condition. It takes 6 different keys to operate this machine. The wood stand is mounted to the register and the center cash drawer opens when the correct buttons have been pushed.
This picture was taken of the machine in natural sun light. It was sitting on the tail gate of a car waiting to move into the museum.
The cash register is extremely heavy and awkward to manuever. Thanks to President Ilene Rounsefell for holding the stand steady and close to the door, while Louie Bay (center) and Grant Jennings lift the register on to the stand.
