Sesquicentennial House of Worship Awards

Illinois Heritage, September–October 2023

Volume 26, Number 5

Elaine Evans 0 1413 Article rating: No rating

In this issue of Illinois Heritage we meet several interesting people from our Prairie State past—Studs Terkel, Milton Kimbler, Eve Josephson Garrison, ––and we revisit Eldorado, Illinois, at the turn of the last century when rioters shut down a Tuskegee model school for African American children and created a “sundown town” in southern Illinois. We also look at the Potawatomi Trail of Death, which came through central Illinois in 1837.

The Heritage is published six times per year and is available as a benefit of membership in the Illinois State Historical Society. Individual editions can also be purchased by contacting our office directly. Visit our Membership section for membership options and information.

Illinois Heritage, November–December 2020

Volume 23, Number. 6

Elaine Evans 0 3263 Article rating: No rating

The presence of humans in the Illinois Country goes back at least 12,000 years, and some archaeologists would push that envelope even further into the past. We find footprints of prehistoric peoples all over the landscape of the Prairie State, and we have ample evidence of their physical presence in cultural artifacts found in museums and historical society collections from Galena to Golconda, Chicago to Cairo. In this issue of Illinois Heritage, our goal is to shine a spotlight on the people who called Illinois home before Europeans arrived on America’s shores.

We also profile southern Illinois historian John Allen and visit the sites of three new historical markers around the state.

Be safe, share your Heritage, and, if you are able, make a donation to the Society in support of our annual appeal. As always, thanks for your membership in the ISHS. With your help, we do great deeds.

Sesquicentennial House of Worship Awards Luncheon Cancelled

Illinois State Historical Society

Elaine Evans 0 1676 Article rating: No rating

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state’s efforts to curtail the spread of the virus, we have opted not to host our Sesquicentennial House of Worship Awards Luncheon on September 26, but will, instead, hold an invitation for those to attend the next gathering, should our public health officials clear our path to do so in 2021. We regret having to cancel this important gathering of Illinois houses of worship, as it has become one of our favorite events. Letters confirming this will be sent out shortly to all who have applied.
