Historical Society to Host Program on Hobo Symbols and Quilts

TISKILWA — Many folks in this community have a connection with hobo lore – whether their families occasionally fed these vagabonds, or worked on the railroads where hobos traveled, or maybe even knew a few hobos personally. From as early as the 1880s through the 1940s, hobos were a familiar part of the American landscape, with tens of thousands riding the rails or walking the byways at any given time.
