DeMoulin Museum will be closed temporary during our move

DeMoulin Museum Temporarily Closed Between Oct 28, 2017 and Feb 2018

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 28 we will be moving to our new location in the former Central Christian Church, at the corner of Prairie and South streets. There is work to be done before the museum reopens. New displays will be created and space for them needs to be prepared, along with some electrical upgrades and other remodeling. The integrity and history of the building is important and will remain intact. We are tentatively planning on a grand opening in February 2018.



DeMoulin Museum Receives Donation from FNB

(September 21, 2017) - The DeMoulin Museum’s fundraising campaign received a major boost Wednesday, September 20th as The First National Bank donated $5,000. A brief check presentation was held at the museum. Since early August, the DeMoulin Museum has been raising money for the purchase and renovation of the former Central Christian Church building. The museum has outgrown its current building due to the number of large tour groups coming to visit and the artifacts being added to the collection.
  Mike Radliff, First National Bank President/CEO, commented, “We are proud to be a supporter of the DeMoulin Museum as it moves forward to this new chapter. The museum continues to attract visitors to Greenville from outside the region and the new building will benefit that mission.”
  Dusty Bauer, Branch Manager for FNB’s Greenville facility, added, “The First National Bank is always looking for ways to benefit our community and the DeMoulin Museum is a big part of our local tourism.”
  Members of the DeMoulin Museum Board of Directors and volunteers participated in the check presentation. Also attending was Dee McQuiston, great granddaughter of Edmond DeMoulin, founder of the factory the museum celebrates.

Overview of Museum

Founded in 1892 as a manufacturer of lodge paraphernalia and regalia, DeMoulin Bros. & Co. of Greenville, Illinois is one of the nation's leading makers of marching band uniforms. The company's diverse production history has included graduation caps and gowns, choir robes, church and lodge furniture, and lodge initiation devices.

The DeMoulin Museum, founded in 2010, pays tribute to the founders, employees, and amazing products created by this unique factory. Though the museum contains examples of many of DeMoulin's creations, the lodge initiation devices---including the Bucking Goat; Invisible Paddle Machine; and Lifting and Spraying Machine---are what have attracted visitors from over 30 states.
