Exhibits and museums should be present in any town. I think that this is not important to everyone, however, I believe it should be. I think that having a place that tells people the origin of their town is very essential. We can foster a love for our town by allowing the people to learn from it. We never know, maybe one of our town's people become a historian because of this. That is why, I suggest that our town funds our very own exhibit.
