Holiday sale keeps county museum alive

COBDEN, IL (KFVS) - The proceeds from a holiday sale are benefiting the Union County Museum and Historical Society.

Since 2006, the annual sale has helped maintain the Cobden, Illinois based museum's $12,000 annual budget.

There are hundreds of Christmas and other holiday items available during the sale.

Many of the items are donated to be resold by the museum.

The museum has no paid employees and operates solely through volunteer work, according to Union County Historical Society President Patrick Brumleve.

The museum features items such as local and historical pottery and Civil War and Native American artifacts.

The store will be open on November 28, 29, and 30. And also on December 6,7, and 13.

The store is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

A Village wide celebration is scheduled for December 6.
