Today we continue to explore the history of southern Illinois with the story of 90-year old Jane Campbell-Brown. Her family has been in the furniture business for nine generations. She sat down with Jim Muir to talk about growing up in Benton.
Her story was recorded on May 21, 2016 as part of the 100th anniversary of the Benton Public Library. WSIU’s Listening Project chronicles the history of our region by connecting people with place through their stories.
