Stephenson County Historical Society Annual Meeting and Dinner

Elaine Evans 0 204 Article rating: No rating

This year saw the demolition of Freeport’s old City Hall, built in 1899. It was a sad event for many historically-minded citizens. Fortunately, the original time capsule was located, saved, and donated to the Stephenson County Historical Society. At this year’s Annual Meeting and Dinner, the Stephenson County Historical Society will reveal those contents for the first time since they were tucked away and sealed within the walls of that building 120 years ago.
