Trutter Museum

From the late 1940s through the mid-1970s, Springfield natives Philip and Mary Kathryn Trutter traveled extensively. From the many countries and principalities they visited over the years, they collected a vast array of art, artifacts and other cultural items of interest.

Upon Mr. Trutter’s death in 2000, much of their extensive collection was bequeathed to Lincoln Land Community College with a generous stipend to establish a museum on the college's Springfield campus. The LLCC Foundation is proud to administer the Trutter Museum and to further share Philip and Mary Kathryn's love of lifelong learning with our students, faculty, staff and community.
