Groundbreaking for Historical Society

BOONE COUNTY (WIFR) -- Construction is just getting started out in Belvidere, on a pretty sizeable expansion of the Boone County Historical Society's museum.

The project will join two existing buildings in Belvidere, to create a much larger space. The move is a long time coming.

Organizers tell us the museum's board and the Boone County taxing district have been trying to raise the necessary funds for about 10 years. Construction is expected to be done by late spring or early summer next year.
