County officials broke ground Tuesday on a second building for the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum.
The building will house all of the museum's large farm equipment, a threshing machine and several exhibits, according to Richard Schukraft, fundraising coordinator for the Agricultural Education Center.
The museum owns corn shellers, mowers and rakes, corn crackers, plows, planters and many other items that are crowding the museum's single building, Schukraft said.
The Washington County Commissioners attended the event and participated in the groundbreaking ceremony. Last month, the commissioners approved $279,200 to build the 7,200-square-foot structure.
