We have extended our renovation project at the museum to include painting more areas and tearing up old carpet to refinish hardwood flooring. We now have more usable wall space because of the new Homasote panels that have been installed, and will be able to display more photos/items from our archive room. This process will take time, and in order to accommodate the further renovations we will remain closed through the month of March. If you have any questions feel free to contact the museum at 217-422-4919, or by email at I am not in my office often during this process, but leave a message and I will return your call. Thank you for your patience, we look forward to seeing you when the museum reopens.
