Cartwright & Monroe

Wednesday, 03 October, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM |

Two early prominent citizens of this area, Levin Cartwright and Byrd Monroe, contributed to Coles County during the 1830-1850s time period in distinctly different ways.  One embraced the hunting and gathering lifestyle, while the other brought an entrepreneurial spirit to us - pursuing many opportunities to establish businesses for profit.  You will learn about personalities, history, and intriguing local lore from historian Dick Hummel. 

Free and open to the public.  Registration requested at 217-581-5114 or:
