On Saturday, on our way home from our committee meeting in Bloomington, my friend Ann and I stopped at the Norsk Museum in Norway, Illinois. Norway was settled in 1834. It is an unincorporated town in northeast LaSalle County, about 100 miles from where I live. (Ann lives in a west-southwest suburb only about 30 miles away so this was in her neck of the woods.)
The former Lutheran church, closed years ago, houses the museum. (The Methodist church a block away is operational.)
Yes, there were quilts. There was also a sewing machine. (I did not lift the lid to see what model).
One of my retirement gifts was a booklet with information about all the local museums and historical societies in Kane and DuPage Counties. I'd like to visit all of them! Summer road trip?
