BLOOMINGTON - Greg Koos, Executive Director of the McLean County Museum of History joined WJBC’s Todd Lowery this afternoon to discuss an exhibit exploring the history of Irish immigrants in McLean County.
'The Greening of the Prairie: Irish Immigration and Settlement in McLean County' focuses on the history of the Irish migration to America and eventually to McLean County.
The exhibit at the museum takes visitors back as far as the middle 18th century and utilizes artifacts and photos which document the arrival and life of Irish settlers in McLean County.
The exhibit will continue at the McLean County Museum of History through August of 2014.
