ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford family is making a generous donation to the Midway Village Museum.

The Eyster family is handing over the deed to nearly 12 acres of land off of Guilford Road. Marvin and Joanne Eyster bought the property back in the 1950’s after falling in love with some of its beautiful oak trees. 60 years later, as they approach their golden years, they're happy to have found a way to preserve the natural setting.
