New Museum Home to Effingham County Relics
The Mattoon Journal-Gazette reports that the museum opened in November includes rooms honoring the county's military veterans, railroad history and businesses. Much of the items on display are donated, including World War II memorabilia and pictures of steam engines that once rolled through the county.
The museum in the former courthouse dating to 1871 and spruced up for housing the historical collections is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
