One of many popular exhibits at the Boone County Heritage Museum is the Duncan Parking Meter exhibit. For those of you that do not know, Duncan manufactured parking meters that were found all across the world. Some of their meters can even be found in San Diego, California and they were manufactured in our own backyard. Methvin Sanitation is currently housed in the old Duncan factory on Industrial Park Road.
