TOULON, Ill. -- The City of Toulon may be home to the state's first agricultural museum.
A local campaign is trying to raise $2 million to make the Midwest Agricultural Heritage Museum a reality.
It would show how agriculture has evolved over the years, specifically farming equipment, like a 1920's thresher once used to separate seeds from corn stalks, but campaign leaders say like any project, funding is always a concern.
"We have mixed support. We have a few of them that say it will never fly and we have some of them that are right behind us pushing us," said Larry Meaker, vice president and treasurer of the museum board of directors.
Fundraising efforts are underway for the museum. For more information and to learn how to donate, visit midwestagmuseum.com.
