Northwest Territory Historic Center wants to see your stuff

DIXON – The Northwest Territory Historic Center is looking for your museum-worthy collectibles – war artifacts, political collections, vehicles of historical importance, nature collections, stamps, military medals, uniforms, gear, flags, anything that may belong in a museum – for a special exhibit.

Registration is due by April 10 for the Personal Museum Day, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 13. Forms and rules are available at nthc.org.

Otherwise, the museum, a member of the Smithsonian Institution Affiliations Program, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 205 W. Fifth St.

The center, the former South Central School where Ronald Reagan attended sixth and seventh grades, features many Reagan-related exhibits, including a restored “Dutch” classroom, plus dioramas of Dixon in 1846 and of a World War 1 airfield, an Abraham Lincoln history room, and a new Prairie Room, featuring bison and Native American exhibits that tell their story as visitors walk by.

Admission is free; guided group tours are available.

Call 815-288-5508 or go to nthc.org for more information.
