The Hoiles-Davis Museum, operated by the Bond County Historical Society, had an open house Tuesday night.

A nice crowd of local residents attended the event to see the various exhibits in the museum, several of them new for 2016.

Society President Kevin Kaegy said it was a great event. He said many volunteers had put in many hours preparing displays, which feature a Military Moms’ display of current service personnel; historical artifacts from local businesses; Charlie Berger, a bootlegger and gangster, who was alleged to have been connected to the November 1926 bank robbery in Pocahontas; and Dr. Katherine Luzader.
