The Bond County Bicentennial Committee is looking for artifacts to display in a special temporary museum exhibit during bicentennial weekend July 1 and 2.
The display will highlight county schools, mines, industries, pictures of communities and events from the past.
Cindy Tischhauser, member of the committee, said unique items or pictures of historical interest are being requested for loan. The goal is to show the diversity of Bond County to visitors at the celebration.
Tischhauser said pictures of Myatt, Hubbard, Blue Mound and Oak Grove schools are especially needed.
Anyone willing to loan an artifact or picture can contact Tischhauser at 618-304-5519 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bicentennial museum will be open on the first floor of the former Masonic Building in downtown Greenville from 4 to 9 p.m. July 1 and noon to 9 p.m. July 2
There will also be a pre-celebration open house from 4 to 9 p.m. on June 30.
The museum is open to everyone and admission is free.
