Furniture from Martha Slyter Home

Martha Slyter, former Grundy County School Superintendent from 1 951 to 1979 sold her little house on Grand Ridge Road, Mazon for $50,000 and willed that money to the Grundy County Historical Society on the stipulation that it would be used toward getting a museum. If that did not happen, the money would be forfeited. This furniture belonged to her mother, a great granddaughter of Gersham Isham who came to Old Mazon in 1834 and settled on the Bloomington-Chicago Trail.
