We are a non-profit organization, located in beautiful southwestern Illinois, dedicated to collecting,
preserving, and sharing historical artifacts, records and family genealogies from Jersey County’s rich

Our three-acre site includes the Cheney Mansion, Lone Star School, McAdams Log Cabin and Union
Forest Church, as well as a genealogy research center and a museum that includes a transportation
room, seven domestic rooms, a brides' room, and a military room. The Flautt Addition of our museum
houses many interesting artifacts and collections, including an extensive collection of Native
American relics and a mammoth bone.

We're glad you dropped by and hope you'll take time to explore our site.
