Pet Rock
A “pet carrier” for the famous Pet Rock, a fad developed by advertising executive Gary Dahl during the 1970s. The fad lasted approximately six months, ending by Christmas of 1975, making Dahl a millionaire.


The turbulent 1970s come to life in this multi-media exhibit.  Visitors experience the sights and sounds of a time when our country was rocked by scandal, protest, and violence.  This was the America that Gerald R. Ford faced upon becoming the 38th President of the United States.  Bell-bottom jeans, love beads, eight-track tapes, and the Pet Rock are just a few of the objects on display.
