Captain Sigsbee's Bathtub-- Part 2: Here, There, Everywhere

In 1929, the bathtub was placed along the wall of the courthouse rotunda and remained there for the next 30 years.  When the courthouse was renovated in 1960 it was removed and shipped to the Findlay College Museum.

They stored it in an old cigar factory.  In 1974 it was turned over to the Hancock Historical Museum who put it in their basement.  It was recently retrieved and now can once again be viewed by visitors, though much of the enamel is gone.

It is currently not on display and probably won't be until 2015.
