“History Matters” Winter Program Series


Each year, the history museum presents a series of programs designed to tell the unique story of Galena and Jo Daviess County, from their founding up to the present. Notable local speakers and scholars delve deep into the backgrounds of topics and people that made this corner of northwest Illinois such a special place. The presentations are free in 2018 thanks to program sponsor Illinois Bank & Trust.
