The Pickle Barrel Museum is located in Grand Marais in Michigan’s Alger County. Resembling two barrels, this museum was originally built in 1926 as a summer home for William Donahey, the cartoonist of the Chicago Tribune’s “Teenie Weenie” cartoon strip. The larger barrel is 16 feet tall (4.9m) and had two stories. The interior contains a living area, pantry, kitchen and bedroom. It had been operated as a tourist information center, ice cream stand and gift shop until 2003 when it was restored back to the summer cottage as it presented in the 1920s. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
