Bringing the Midway Village Museum Archives Online For Public Use
Midway Village Museum, Rockford Illinois’ local history museum, is proud to introduce its online collections site. 2,000 of the most regularly requested images from the Museum's collection have been made accessible here.
The site is keyword searchable. Each image has been uploaded as a low resolution watermarked file. High resolution copies of the images are available upon request by using the contact form. Please reference the Identifier Number (found on the information page for each image) with your request.
