The exhibition, Gateway – The Three Rivers Country, focuses on the ecological transformation of Madison County during the early decades of European settlement. The work in the exhibition includes adaptations of historical sources and references along with contemporary material in historical context. The native ecology at the time of settlement was heavily promoted as a resource for development and opportunity. In many cases, the diversity and abundance of pre-settlement ecology is highlighted and available for comparison and reflection. The exhibition is installed in the Winterset train depot (established in 1872), which played a significant role as part of the railway system that helped extend the county’s market for goods.
