Nancy Porter and Kevin VanDrunen at Van Drunan Farms headquarters

Kevin Van Drunen & Nancy Liberty Porter are shown at the Van Drunen Farms Headquarters in Momence. Van Drunen Farms funded nearly 4/5 of the restoration costs for the Graham Historic House & Museum which won the Illinois Main Street Award for Design and Preservation late last month in Carbondale, Illinois. The Graham House was also recognized last year as they took home Main Street Momence's most coveted prize the "Les Du Montelle" Award for Excellence for Downtown Building Restoration. Nancy volunteered hundreds of hours as she oversaw the complete interior and exterior restoration of the 1869 modest Victorian home and Kevin ensured the only the best contractors and materials were used during the process.
