Joyce's collection

In the front display cabinet of the heritage center we feature the collections of our staff and volunteers. The last two showings have featured the model tractor collections of Mary Beth and Jim. This week Joyce brought in her collections of horses. I met Joyce years ago when I was working as the director at the Museums at Prophetstown. Joyce is one of those people who has done everything. I like to hear her stories of driving horse carriages in downtown Chicago. I can't imagine having to compete for the road with all the buses, taxis and fast moving cars. If you have a chance, stop by and see the hundreds of horses in Joyce's stable.
