This building is downtown Maquon IL which is located on route 97. The downtown of our small town has went downhill over the years and we are trying to help preserve some of it buy rebuilding the building keeping the front store look.
Maquon used to be a very popular due to the spoon river scenic drive. As the town went down hill so has the people who travel to Maquaon. Growing up in the area all my life its hard to see.
Its becoming a ghost town. Our ultimate goal is to build to Spoon river scenic drive museum at this location as there is a lot of history of this town and of the drive. We need help with the cost of materials and some of the labor involved in being able to complete this project.
