Historical Society Members Visit Roseville

Members of the Prairieland Historical Society paid a visit to the Warren County Historical Society Museum in Roseville, IL last week. Located in a former school building just off city route Hwy 34 in Roseville, the museum is chock full of fascinating material relating to the history of Warren County.

Exhibits range from Native American arrowheads and antique farm machinery to period clothing and historic photographs. Some displays feature full scale mock-ups of Grandma's house, a barber shop, a doctor's office, and a schoolroom. There is also a library that houses books, old news clippings, and even scrapbooks made by past residents.

The museum is not open on a regular schedule, but a contact phone number is listed on the sign near the front door.
