The Sycamore History Museum is proud to announce the grand opening of their new exhibition, "General Dutton's America". By researching General E. F. Dutton through letters, newspapers, photographs, maps, and artifacts, we can gain a better understanding of Sycamore and its history. Although hundreds of stories could have been told, this exhibit features Sycamore during the Pioneer Era, the Civil War, and the Gilded Age. This exhibit combines the history of one person with local history and national history.
And keep watch for additional information about the on-line exhibit that will accompany the real exhibit.
In the meantime, check out our collection page and do a key work search for "Dutton". Here you can get a glimpse of some of SHM's artifacts connected to Dutton's story.
This exhibit and programs are generously funded by The Douglas C. and Lynn M. Roberts Family Foundation, the Dutton family, and the Mary E. Stevens Concert and Lecture Fund.
Revisit "General Dutton's America" this summer, together with your family and friends, during regular museum hours of 10:00am to 3:00pm on Tuesday through Saturday.
