Sadly, for aficionados of the macabre, the severed fingers that were displayed at the courthouse in BG are not available for viewing at this time. So you won't be able to check them out during the bike tour of BG.
Bike tour is cancelled.

They were moved to the Wood County Historical Center and Museum on County Home Road and have been "curated" (rehydrated). They are slated to be on display again in either 2018 (maybe in time for the reunion?) or 2020.
Just in case you want to read the history of the preserved fingers & see an image online click here: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2811

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT!!! You will see the fingers in the jar!
