This little barrel owned by Steve Burwash came from the Christensen store many years back. Steve says that when he played in a little band, his son Martin Burwash used it as a stool.
The barrel still faintly shows the Christensen name, as well as Eatonville, and Washington Street. When I asked Steve (who is now 93) what came in the barrel, he didn’t know but said, “Pickles used to come in a barrel like that.”
This barrel, I believe, will be donated to the Eatonville museum (aka the little cabin out by Mill Pond).
