The Cornell Amity Township Museum contains an endless amount of Cornell, Illinois historical items. The museum is open to the public the first Sunday of each month from 1pm – 3pm. The museum was the dream of long time Cornell resident Gale Donze. Gale wanted to have a museum for residents of Cornell to come to and reminisce about their past endeavors and lifestyles. The Cornell Museum also educates the younger generations about the history of Cornell and how their grandparents and great-grandparents lived, worked and enjoyed life in the earlier years. The Cornell Amity Township Museum is a gathering place to relive the history of Cornell.
