George Alma Rouse celebrated her 90th birthday with a private viewing of the Florida Pioneer Museum on July 8th. Why the Museum? George Alma is an avid fan of the Antique Road Show and knows a great deal about antiques and history.

She was accompanied by her daughter Melony Simmons, granddaughter Kaitlin Buckhalt and greatgrandson Luke Buckhalt. Not shown John Buckhalt.

George Alma climbed the steep stairs to the second floor to view the doll house, school items and a rustic bed.

She grew up in Omaha, Texas, a small town of 1.2 square miles and a population of 1,024. When asked she stated that her unusual first name was not an issue in Omaha.
