2021 Best of Illinois History Awards and ISHS Annual Meeting

This past year was challenging on multiple levels, not just because of the pandemic but due to the stress our museums, historical societies, and other educational communities have endured to keep our doors open (even when closed), and to give our staffs and volunteers meaningful tasks and goals to achieve. How empowering to know that even in an international crisis and lockdown we still can enrich other lives by sharing our Illinois history. Our “Best of Illinois History” celebration takes place over Zoom beginning at 4 p.m., on Friday, April 23. The link to join the celebration is:
