Ed & Cece Hellman donated the railroad car to the Village in 2011 and it will be moving to its new location, next to the Panora Depot, in 2012.

Several original items from the old Lenon Mill, including a swing sifter, were recently donated to the museum.  A new display will be created this season to house the large artifacts.
