About Us...

The Charles Perdew Museum Association (CPMA) is an Illinois Not-for-Profit Corporation founded and operated by dedicated volunteers, and is endorsed by the descendents of Charles and Edna Perdew.

Our mission is to educate the public by preserving the Perdew’s artistic legacy in their depiction of Illinois River waterfowl and wildlife.

The workshop, in which Charles Perdew spent many hours crafting his decoys among the smell of pine and cedar shavings, has been fully restored and now houses the museum. There you will find a recreation of Charles’ workshop environment, exhibits featuring Perdew artifacts, and special exhibits and events.
