DeMoulin Museum Receives Unique Masonic Donation(Sunday, February 21, 2016) - Greenville Masonic Lodge 245 AF & AM has donated a set of vintage aprons made by DeMoulin Bros. & Co. The aprons were found last fall in storage at the lodge's former home on the Greenville square. Preparing for the move to their new location on College Avenue, members of the lodge suggested donating the aprons to the DeMoulin Museum. DeMoulin Bros. & Co. made a variety of things for Masonic lodges including aprons, furniture, and regalia. The aprons will be featured in a special display this spring.
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.
