Friday- Monopoly 75th Birthday!!!

Charles Darrow was unemployed during the depression, for two years he tried to sell a game he devised. This game called “Monopoly” made him a millionaire. It was invented seventy-five years ago on March 7, 1933. Check out our display case this month as we have many different versions of his world famous game on display. For more on the history of ”Monopoly” try reading one of Philip Orbanes’ books “Monopoly” or “The Game Makers” the story of The Parker Brothers.
