Union County Museum

The Union County Museum and the Shop at the Museum is opening for the 2022 season on Saturday, April 2, 1p.m. The museum and shop are located at 111 S. Appleknocker in downtown Cobden, Ill.

The Museum will feature the exhibit “The Winstead Davie Family Collection, The Early Years.” The Historical Society acquired over 200 pieces from a descendant including photos, letters, survey, newspapers and artifacts including a stanhope, early primary school books, children’s clothing, and Davie family handle knives and forks. Winstead was the founder of Anna.

The centerpiece of the collection is Winstead’s handwritten work book from 1814. The handmade book still retains some of its original cover made of blue and tan homespun. The book, in excellent condition, contains over 200 pages.

Some of the other artifacts on display will be a rare set of handmade Civil War era playing cards, surveys of various areas of Union County, baby and children’s bonnets and original letters to and from Winstead.

Other parts of the donation, including items from the Perrine Family, will be the subject of a later exhibit because of the volume of materials.

The Shop for the Benefit of the Museum has been stocked with new merchandise including Easter, artificial flowers, Spring items, glassware, scented candles, antiques and collectibles.

The Museum and Shop will operate regular hours on Saturday and Sunday from 1-5p.m. and Friday afternoons by chance.

Admission is free and open to the public. For questions or information call 618/893-2865 or 618/893-2067.
