The Renegade Rooster-Winlock History Collection is a place where you can find many things of days gone by. Roy Richards is a great guy, he has a huge collection of items from Winlock and the area that show items that we used around here many years ago. I have not been yet but, I have been hearing great things about it. The Renegade Rooster is open by appointment: Roy is located at 558 Rhoades Road in Winlock. He also has a Facebook page and you can view many of the items that are there. I am amazed that Roy has spent so much of his own money and time to help others remember how things used to be. He is also a really nice guy and you will enjoy meeting him and chatting things up!
