Working Together!
Exciting news about the Godley Route 66 Mining Museum!  Together with the help of the Board of Commissioners from the Village, Park District, and the Museum Curator, Monica Mack, updates and improvements were made to the museum.  Stop by and explore the museum while enjoying the new improvements.  You'll  find signs donated by Route 66 Scenic  Byways, a bench for relaxing, plants, shrubs, and trees.  We were able to install sidewalks that are ADA accessible and make drainage improvements around the museum to prevent future flooding.  Thank you to everyone who helped make this project a reality.  Because of you, future generations will be able to experience the history of Godley and the mining industry.
