Twenty years ago Keith Peterson of Nampa sorted through a pile of "family junk" headed for the city dump. He found several items -- useless and broken -that he just couldn't seem to part with so he took them home and stored them away. Today those pieces of "junk" are an important part of the antique collection that delights visitors In the Peterson home, "\ really never intended to start collecting antlcjies," explained Peterson, 'tint before I knew It, I had accumulated a number of old things." Friends have taken an interest In the collection and often give him new pieces. Most of the Items are housed in a small recreation room in the basement of the Peterson home. Perhaps the most striking piece Is an Intricately carved organ nearly six feet tall. The organ was transported from Jordan Valley and still plays. "Part of the top piece has to be removed," said Peterson. It proved Just a little tall for the room. Distributed around the room are several coal oil lamps, flat irons, fruit jars and kettles. One shelf holds abutter mold, another a cherry pltter and still another an aged coffee mill. Three stately gramophones, one complete with a bell horn, are also prized possessions. They all work and play small cylinders instead of flat records. One of Peterson's favorite pieces Is an eight-day mantle clock made by the New Haven Clock company in the late 1800s. Beneath the clock stands an old sewing machine -- most likely a Singer. The walls of the room are adorned with three heavy picture frames over 100 years old. "They have been in the family for years," said Peterson. He mentioned that they came over from Sweden, An arrangement of cooking ulenslls Is displayed In one frame and ornate silver spoons grace another. An old 12 gauge shotgun, a grain cradle over 100 years old and a heavy horse collar converted Into a mirror are also conversation pieces. The patio has its share of valuables. A pot belly stove and a huge wood cook stove lend atmosphere to any gathering. Not to be nit done, the spacious livn has Its points of interest too. A block planter features authentic water pumps at either end, each with its own lantern hanging from the handle. Urge painted wagon wheels lean aganst the structure. Gone are the days of cultivating the prairie behind a horse drawn plow or sharpening a hunting knife on a large wheel grindstone but a bit of the old west remains at this Nampa home. Nestled among the flowers are two relics of that period In history. TEtl fOUX STORV where fl will get action -- trie Classified Section.
