Destination: Heartland History
Thursday, March 23 | 7P | Free | Museum Auditorium
Cynthia Clampitt will take us on a tour of destinations and events across the Greater Midwest that reveal how a region famed for supplying food supplied so much more, including iconic images, legendary individuals, and inventions that would change the world. From prehistory to present, Wild West to Wright Brothers, hear the tales and “visit” the museums, living-history venues, archaeological digs, historic towns, vintage farms, reenactments, and even restaurants that make the Midwest’s past accessible—and fun. This event is co-hosted by the Culinary Historians of Northern Illinois.
