To our readers:

The nominations are in and buzz is building. If you have not already done so, mark your calendars for Friday, April 24 and the “Best of Illinois History Awards Gala,” the night the Illinois State Historical Society celebrates the people, organizations, authors, museums, and historical societies that made history in the Prairie State in 2019. If you haven’t already received your invitation in the mail, call us. We’ll have one in the mail before you can name the state fossil.

This issue of Illinois Heritage contains articles on several fascinating people, places, and events in our state’s past that will stir your imagination, bring you closer to the essence of Illinois and, perhaps, stoke your own creative fires.

Thank you for reading Illinois Heritage. Your membership and gifts keep this organization vital and relevant. We cannot serve Illinois history without you.

Preservationists Jane and Jesse Boehler will speak on preservation of historic Clayville, Illinois, a mid-1800s settlement that provided nourishment, spirits and overnight accommodations for people and horses travelling the American frontier.

Kim Orth, Executive Director, Nauvoo Tourism Office, will discuss “the other Nauvoo” and its complex history as the “Beautiful Place” settled by Mormons, inhabited by Icarians (French-based Utopian socialist movement) and growth as a regional grape cultivation and wine-making center.
