02/25/11 The Marshall County Museum would like to highlight a unique collection of baby bottles on display dating from the early to late twentieth century. Some of the donors to our compilation include Martha Mae Dean, Jolene Westafer and Kathy Warner. Come see the interesting evolution of baby feeding instruments and other infant related artifacts.
Some of the bottles on display include the flask style (back), the double ended (right) and turtle style bottle (front) that came equipped with internal tubes, a cork, hoses, and a nipple. It became know as the “Murder Bottle.”
The museum is located at 123 North Michigan Street. Their hours of operation are Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4p.m. If you have any questions, please call 574-936-2306 or check out their website at mchistoricalsociety.org.
