[WATCH] Sylacauga man donates rare historical items to Comer Museum


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – For over 45 years, Frank Banks has been collecting rare historical and military items from around the world.

Banks and his wife Mary have partnered with the Isabel Anderson Comer Museum and Arts Center, bringing a wide variety of rare historical items to the museum.

“One thing I want to tell you is there will be several displays that you will never see anywhere else in the world,” said Banks.

Banks hopes the different items on display will help teach children about history they may not learn in the classroom.

Here is a sneak peek of some of the items that will be on display at the museum.
