Included are prehistoric artifacts dredged out of the Wabash River by the operators of the former Eastwood Sand and Gravel Company, and historic artifacts excavated from the early village of Bonpas; materials from the Centennial celebration; materials relating to the life and military career of Grayville native Rear Admiral James Meredith Helm, and his wife, who was the social secretary to Eleanor Roosevelt, and materials related to Mrs. Roosevelt’s visit to Grayville in the 1940s. Also on display are programs and artifacts from the Tri-State Oil Show, which was held annually in Grayville in the 1950s.
