New Lincoln Heritage Museum to open in fall of 2013

The new Lincoln Heritage Museum at Lincoln College is set to open in fall of 2013.

In 2008 Lincoln College broke ground for the Lincoln Center—a new multi-faceted facility featuring a state-of-the-art museum, a physical fitness and health center, a spacious gymnasium, and a multi-media classroom and office space. The center opened in 2010, with the new museum being the final phase of the building project.

Lincoln College hired Taylor Studios from Rantoul, Illinois to design and fabricate the museum. The design phase began in 2011, and the build is to commence in 2012, with the opening in Fall of 2013.

The new museum will be on two floors, with approximately 4,000 square feet of exhibit space. That is approximately four times the space of the current facility. –
