Last year, the Bond County Historical Society was gifted the DeMoulin House along South Fourth Street in Greenville to move its museum.
The Hoiles-Davis Museum has been in existence over 20 years, providing information and presenting artifacts on the history of Bond County. The museum is in the process of being moved across the street to the new location.
John Coleman, treasurer of the historical society, said it’s a long process and there is a lot of work to be done. The society needs to review some plans with an architect and the building must be made handicap accessible. He said it will be 2020 before the new museum opens.

Coleman said the new location has green space for events. He said it will be a great setting for things like the Muny Band performance, which they hosted last week.
