On Saturday, November 20 at 1:00 p.m., please join McLean County Museum’s Librarian, Bill Kemp, for a free, Zoom webinar that will explore the history of corn and how it has been a staple crop in what is today McLean County for the better part of a millennium. We'll be following the intertwined stories of corn and McLean County—from the corn-growing, mound-building Mississippians of the 13th century, to Funk Bros Seed Co. and the hybrid corn revolution of the 20th century.
