The library is located at 408 West Main Street in Collinsville. The focus of the History Harvest is to collect information for a future exhibit about immigration and migration to Madison County. The History Harvest is collaborative effort of MCHS staff and volunteers with students and faculty from SIUE’s IRIS Center and Department of History. It is supported by a SHARP grant from the American Historical Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. If area residents know the story of how or why their family moved to Madison County and have documentation, the Society asks that they bring them to this event where items will be scanned to make their family part of the recorded story of Madison County. Participants will be given a USB drive with high-quality digital images of their items. Walk-ins are welcome but reservations are recommended.
