The exhibit is divided into four topic areas central to life in McLean County: People, Work, Farming and Politics.
Each topic area occupies a room in the renovated Beaux-Artes County Courthouse.
A full-size replica of timber-frame carpentry— used as to display the tools that went into its construction. We did a similar reconstruction of balloon-frame architecture (invented in Chicago).
The displays consist of a central glassed-in structure for larger objects. The structure supports a reading rail containing smaller items, graphics, simple interactives and ephemera.
