Over the years, the original facility for the Oil Workers Memorial had deteriorated and the Oblong Oilfield Museum, as it was known at the time, faded as well. In 1989, however, efforts began to revive and invigorate the museum and it was reincorporated as the tax-exempt Illinois Oilfield Museum and Resource Center. With the support of former State Sen. Bill O'Daniel, the museum received a $100,000 grant from the state, making construction of the new building possible. The Illinois Petroleum Resource Board, Heath Foundation, Claypool Foundation, and Oblong Community Ruritan Club have also provided much-needed funds.
