DeMoulin Museum Building Fund
The DeMoulin Museum opened on March 20, 2010. Since then, we've welcomed over 7,000 visitors from around the world. The good news is we continue adding artifacts to our collection AND we're attracting bus tour groups. Because of this, we've outgrown our building. We've reached a tentative agreement to purchase the former Central Christian Church building in Greenville, IL. But we need your help to purchase and renovate this 1880s building. The bigger building will allow us to do many things we currently can't. The DeMoulin Museum is dedicated to the founders, employees, and unique products made by DeMoulin Bros. & Co. Our claim to fame is the quirky lodge initiation devices made by the factory in the early 1900s. We're ready to grow and become a major tourist destination in southern Illinois. Our goal is to have the funds raised so we can begin moving in January 2018. We are a 501c3 under the Bond County Community Foundation. DeMoulin Museum Official Website+ Read More
Here's a glimpse at the DeMoulin Museum's future home. This is the original part of the Central Christian Church building, constructed in 1882. One of our projects is improving the lighting. We will be keeping most of the pews and the beautiful stained-glass windows. Our Go Fund Me campaign is nearing $3,000. Your support can help us make the big move!
Hi friends of the DeMoulin Museum! One of our donors, Tom Sandifer, has issued a challenge. He will match the first person who donates $1,000 to the museum's Go Fund Me effort. This is a great opportunity for us! One-thousand dollar donor, are you out there?
Thanks everyone for the donations. We're on our way. The funds we generate here have been designated for repairs and upgrades to our future home. The Central Christian Church was built in 1882 as the Grace Episcopal Church. The building is in great shape but needs a few repairs, lighting upgrades, and a fresh coat of paint.
