Bishop Hill Heritage Association’s Summer Exhibit: Rarely Seen Treasures from the Attic
Rarely Seen Treasures from the Attic is the new summer exhibit opening at the Steeple Building on June 9, 2013. The Bishop Hill Heritage Association will be exhibiting various objects from its collection that have not been displayed in decades or have never been displayed at all! Some of these artifacts include a presidential land grant signed by Founding Father James Monroe, an 18th century Swedish legal document, and a newspaper describing George Washington’s funeral. This exhibit contains objects from American, Swedish, and Bishop Hill history. New artifacts will be displayed each month. The exhibition ends September 30. It is sponsored by the Swedish Council of America and the Illinois Arts Council.
