Columns from the "Old School"


The Corinthian columns from the former Eastern Illinois Trust and Savings Bank building, which was built in 1905 and was located in Kankakee, had been saved when the building was destroyed in the 1960s. The columns had been donated to the museum's artifact collection and were being stored and now are on display outside in the Column Garden at the Kankakee Historical museum. There were also historic bells, bences, flowers and a millstone placed in the garden that took over two years to create.
