Since 1998, when the Cheney Mansion was donated to the Jersey County Historical
Society, our complex has grown to include our museum, our Genealogy Research
Center, and three additional historic buildings -- the one-room Lone Star School, the
McAdams log cabin, and the Union Forest Church.

To schedule a tour of any or all of our buildings for groups of 10 or more, phone Carol
Senger at 618-498-2811 or 618-639-4749. Smaller groups and individuals can join us at our
Apple Festival and tour all our buildings for a nominal fee.
