Macomb, IL – The new exhibit at the Western Illinois Museum is called "The Collection A to Z: Arrowheads to Zeno." The displayed artifacts are divided into 26 topic areas. There's one area for each letter of the alphabet. Museum board treasurer Gil Belles says the exhibit was an opportunity to display some items that have not been shown for a while. The exhibit opened this week and will remain on display until early March. A reception will be held Saturday December 3, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. The museum is located at the corner of Washington and LaFayette, which is just off Macomb's courthouse square.
