Every few years, our small group of friends gets together and tries to find unique places to visit. When Lee Maxwell's Washing Machine Museum (and it isn't only washing machines!) popped up in a web search, we knew we had to go. The machines alone are worth the time (a dryer that plays "How Dry I Am"? Yes!). Lee Maxwell and his interesting facts, stories and quips takes this tour from interesting to fantastic. Mr. Maxwell, who gets more done in a week than most of us do in a month, is now making smaller wooden models of machines patented 300 years ago - just to see how they might have worked. He is a delightful host and person. We all want to be Lee Maxwell when we grow up.
