creepy museums and attractions in the month of October to bring you a museum dedicated to a film star, who was born on this day in 1895:
Buster Keaton. There are movie posters, photographs and copies of his movies, which visitors can play. And if you’re into face casts, they have one. But there is no sign for the museum as it is located inside the town’s water district office. But there is a plaque
American actor, vaudevillian, comedian, filmmaker, stunt performer, writer, and silent film star
"In October of 1895, Myra and Joseph Keaton were touring with Harry Houdini in a traveling vaudeville show. The troupe stopped in Piqua [Kansas] for a performance. While in Piqua, Mrs. Keaton gave birth to a son, Frank Joseph Keaton. The troupe eventually moved on, and the Keatons’ son became a famous comedy actor and silent screen star, known as Buster Keaton. Mr. Keaton returned to Piqua only once in his lifetime. Even though he was never a resident of Piqua, we are very proud to claim a small part in this great actor’s life!"
