Lake Village man has special place for children of all ages
LAKE VILLAGE — Wally Rich began a collection over 18 years ago that has turned into much more at his Lake Village home on State Road 10. Starting with electric trains, Rich’s collection now includes dolls, Indian artifacts, Civil War memorabilia, space memorabilia, and even Star Wars and Batman. Wally’s World continues to grow as people learn more about him and help add to his collections.
Wally’s World includes a tour of his museum-like home, and the most fun for children, his incredible electric train collection, built over the years by Rich into a room full of tiny figures all with a story behind each one.
