Ever wonder what happened to the big red horse that used to spin over the Mobil station at Casa Linda? Check out the remodeled Old Red Museum downtown, which just opened recently and features the Pegasus from that defunct station as one of its centerpieces.

I haven’t been down there since the grand opening, but I’ve talked with a few people who have, and it actually sounds like we now have TWO tourist destinations downtown (after you make the obligatory stop by the JFK museum). There are all kinds of historical documents, photos and information on display; admission is $8 ($5 for kids and $6 for seniors). Check out the website at www.oldred.org if you want more information or can’t wait to see the Pegasus.
