Winchester Wax Museum- Oliver Winchester

Entrepreneur Oliver Winchester discusses
a new invention with his employee-
B. Tyler Henry whose patents in 1860
made the company a success.

What would a wax museum about the Winchester company be without a figure of the man himself. Oliver Fisher Winchester (1810-1880) took the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company and turned it into an empire. He is seen here with Benjamin Tyler Henry, who invented the Henry Rifle. The Wax Museum on the Mystery House property seems to have been pretty modest from what I can tell. (but not every place can be Madame Tussaud's)
