FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — If you’ve been a follower of ours for any length of time since we started this focus on Freeport, then you must know we are avid followers and supporters of the effort to bring a children’s museum to Freeport and northwest Illinois.

Best news is, it’s here, it’s happening, a location inside the Freeport Lincoln Mall is set and this effort for kids is making great strides to get their museum open.

Recently the group shared progress on the Farm they are creating at the Children’s Hands-On Museum’s location inside the Mall. You can learn more about the project, and see all the updates here.
