The Tazewell County Museum held its Annual meeting March 25, 2015. President Christal Dagit welcomed attendees.

Following dinner she shared the State of the Museum, what has been happening at both sites of the Museum and invited everyone to visit. She emphasized we still need more space.

She introduced Dr. Michael Wiant of Dixon Mounds Museum who gave a very informative talk on a "specific artifact rock" that Christal showed him during their afternoon tour.

He also shared how far the ice fields came down and how Starved Rock was formed plus much more information about our area and the very early Native American population.
