Since its opening in 2012, the Marion County Heritage Center has been growing new exhibits. The center now devotes two rooms to Don Johnson, a local trumpet player. It also houses the largest private collection of J.W. Pepper musical instruments. Recently, Friedemann Immer gifted Don Johnson his childhood trumpet, which is on display. Immer is a world-class baroque trumpet player. The heritage center also has a trumpet that is believed to be from the Royal Family of England.
