Ollie Schaefer Remembered


The community is mourning the passing of Oliver Schaefer
at the age of 80.

Best known as Ollie, he was the driving force in the
creation of the American Farm Heritage Museum just
outside of Greenville along Interstate 70.

Galen Peters, one of the original investors in the
museum. He said it was safe to say that without Ollie?s
dream, there would be no museum. Peters said Ollie
convinced many people that the effort was a worthwhile
project. He said Ollie put a lot of his own money into
the museum.

Schaefer was the son of a farm equipment dealer in
Granite City, lived on a farm, then moved to Bond County
in 1963. He worked at Bond Equipment and became part-
owner of the Oliver dealership.

It is fitting that this year?s featured company at Farm
Heritage Days was already decided to be Oliver. Peters
said many will be thinking of Ollie when the show is held
at the end of July.
