Wilson Historial Society Memorial Day Fair Adventure and more

Peggy and l wanted to do something today and we decided to go to the Historical Society in Wilson for their Memorial Day Fair.  We had been to the Historical Society before to look for a geocache (unsuccessful) but the buildings were all closed, and we wanted to go in them.

We found a good parking spot at a business next door to the museum complex and walked over.  The first building we went in was the schoolhouse.  Very authentic looking! 

Then we went to the old car museum. 

 Also very nice!  We noticed that many of the cars were donated by Dr. Argue, including this one:
From there we went to the train depot, which is a museum, with lots of exhibits.  I noticed this picture of Dr. J. F. Argue. 

As we were leaving the depot, we noticed that there was a flag ceremony about to start. 
We crossed the road to see if we might have lunch at the Woodcock Brothers Brewery.  I was concerned that they would be very crowded because of the event across the road, but we were able to get a table right away.  We shared an appetizer (bruchetta) and a roasted vegetable salad.  Both were very good.
Right next door to the restaurant is a shop that sells oils and vinegars and we went inside and sampled a few.  They also offer Lake Effect ice cream and I had a "baby" frozen hot chocolate cone.  Peggy bought a couple of items.  I checked out the small antique shop. 
We returned to the fair and went into the caboose. 
The cabin and shop were not open, unfortunately.  Peggy bought a piece of red velvet cake. 
We headed out to find a couple of geocaches. We were not successful in finding Super Stephanies First Cache along a trail near a fishing access
 but we did find one called Pine Find.  Then we headed back to Lockport.
