The Illinois Department of Agriculture has designated the Chad Ebers farm near Chester as a Centennial Farm. To qualify as a Centennial Farm, a straight or collateral line of descendants must have owned the property for at least 100 years. The Centennial Farm program helps to reinforce that family farming remains a viable entity in Illinois agriculture. The Illinois Centennial Farms program has recognized more than 9,000 farms since its inception in the early 1970s.

Elaine Evans 0 2372 Article rating: No rating

This March–April issue of Illinois Heritage highlights the recognition of thirty Illinois churches and synagogues that have been in continuous fellowship for 150 years or more. Currently, more than 200 churches and synagogues have been recognized by the ISHS.

The Bicentennial Year is well underway with many special events planned by local historical societies, libraries, government agencies and other community organizations. As an individual, consider reading one or more books listed in the Illinois Classics: A Bicentennial Reading List, a twelve-month reading list that includes novels, nonfictional works, and poetry, all by Illinois authors and expressive of the Illinois experience. 

This issue expresses not only the variety of interests in the state, but what is important at different periods in our state’s history.
