Museum Exhibit on Early 20th Century Farm Life

Macomb, IL – The Western Illinois Museum in Macomb will showcase farm equipment from the late 1800s through the 1930s. It hopes to provide a glimpse into the life of the early 20th century farmer. Museum curator Jennifer Ring Edwards says the exhibit will focus on the life of farmers from the region. In addition, she says some of the equipment on display will be from regional manufacturers. The exhibit, "Down on the Farm," opens next week and will be on display through the end of October.
