106. Neighborhood Museums

Every neighborhood should have a little mini-museum that would serve to tell the history of the neighborhood with pictures, stories, timelines, etc. These museums would also display some significant, important, odd or unusual objects found in the neighborhood or made by people in the neighborhood. Maybe these museums could also show pictures and have stories about significant/important people who have lived or are living in the neighborhood. Recent events in the neighborhood may also be reported on. It doesn’t need to be a formal museum with regular hours, it could be just an open display wall. But it might be better to have greater security, especially in areas with a higher probability of vandalism/damage. Perhaps such museums could be located within the boundaries of a local school to provide more content oversight and security. This way school children could grow up with a more complete understanding of their local area’s history.
