Adventures To and From Sycamore

Alaska, Japan, Sweden, Mexico, France and Iraq are not necessarily places you would describe as having a strong connection to Sycamore. However, in the exhibit “Adventures To and From Sycamore,” these faraway lands are connected to local people with amazing stories. The exhibit has four main themes: immigration, education, military and expeditions. This exhibit is now closed. However, you can still enjoy an online version here.

Searchable databases to research a variety of topics can be found on the  Joiner History Room website.
