On the right, Leo and Esther Ouellette are particularly proud of the glass door that separates the museum from the post assembly area. Leo Ouellette secured the door at a highly discounted rate when the supplier was told what it was for. The door will remain locked for security purposes, but Ouellette will be happy to open it up for anyone who wants to see the museum at 143 S. Lemon in Orange. Contact (714) 334-2961 for information.
