The Andrew County Museum & Historical Society provides a glimpse into the culture and environment of the rural Midwest . . . from farms to small towns . . . from 1841 to present day through our permanent 'Rural Way of Life' exhibit and rotating exhibits in the Duncan Gallery. ACM captures the spirit and history of Andrew County, but could easily represent any rural community. ACM also provides monthly programs, special events and genealogy research resources and services.
A Rural Way of Life
The award winning exhibit titled A Rural Way of Life, interprets the rich heritage of Andrew County from 1841 into the 21st century. It explores the history of farming, as well as small towns by contrasting and comparing life “on the farm” with life “in town” and showing how farm and small town life has changed through the years.
In addition, the Duncan Gallery hosts a variety of temporary exhibits highlighting topics including exhibits on Medicine in Early Andrew County, an updated Harry Duncan exhibit, an updated Kewpie exhibit featuring a variety of Mabel Dray's dolls, and exhibits on family life, first responders and more.
In keeping with this year's theme, we plan on offering a program highlighting music from earlier times in the county.
