While out and about, doing some in town errands, I needed to stop by the Thomasville public library to drop off a couple of borrowed items.
It is a small library..its a small town, a little over 4,000 souls and because it is small, it is not hard to notice this good size and great shape of this National Cash Register on display. It was a gift to the library by the William Adams Kimbraugh family, descendants of a family who's beginnings go back to the 1800s in these parts.
In the 1880s, the family began and operated a general store, selling food and other sundries.
This was their cash register that was in use.
I was told that the library has had offers to purchase the register, yet it cannot ever be sold. The family put in writing at the time of donating to the library, that the register shall Allways Be a permanent display.
It is available for public viewing six days a week.
