Discover the century-long history of Myra Station!

Join Will Best, Museum Manager for the Champaign County History Museum, as we explore the century-long history of the Myra Station grain elevator and the Silver Family, for which it was named. Myra Station towered above farmland at the corner of Highcross Rd. and Windsor Rd. until 1986, and it served as a hub for local community members and farmers.
