In April 2002, a group of farmers, collectors, governmental representatives, and civic leaders gathered to share a dream of building a museum to preserve our farm heritage. With Greenville, IL (Bond County), being in the heart of the agriculture community and almost in the middle of the United States, it was the was the perfect place to turn this dream into a reality.

Our main building is 16,000 sq ft, while smaller buildings surround it. One houses permanent farm machinery displays featuring equipment of all colors, while the other contains a revolving display area and small collections depicting the history of rural America. There is something for everyone in the family. Outside we have a picnic area and a small playground for children with farm related things to do.

Museum is open (May Thru Oct) every Saturday 9am till 3pm, Railroad runs first Saturday of the month, Hills Fort is also open First Saturdays of the month
