The DeMoulin Museum was right in the middle of the Greenville Bicentennial action this past weekend.

The museum has a new item on display, courtesy of the University of Illinois Marching Illini. Museum Curator John Goldsmith told WGEL the band donated a marching band uniform from the U of I to the museum. The uniform was, of course, made by DeMoulin’s in Greenville.
