My favorite tools are the draw knife and the antique bee smoker.

Created a display of historic farming tools in the first floor display cabinet.  Lewis Neal, Wilson County local history collector extraordinaire,  was kind enough to let me borrow several tools from his collection.    The farming tools are from different eras of Wilson’s past (those eras being cotton and tobacco) with some other odds and ends thrown in.
