For over 30 years, Springfield natives Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter traveled extensively to many different countries and principalities throughout the world. During those travels, they collected a vast array of art, artifacts and other cultural items of interest. In 2000, much of their extensive collection was bequeathed to Lincoln Land Community College and the Trutter Museum was established to share the Trutters' love of lifelong learning with the public.
