Monday night program to feature Tiskilwa’s role in early Bureau County
TISKILWA — Almost 200 years ago, the first European settlers were moving to this frontier where the Potawatomi had a long-established home. What happened next?
On Monday evening, Carolyn Workman of Princeton will guide her audience along a pictorial journey through the county’s early history, with a special focus on Tiskilwa’s role from the 1800s to the 1840s. Hosted by the Tiskilwa Historical Society, the program begins at 7 p.m. in the Museum on Main, 110 E. Main St., Tiskilwa.
A history buff and past president of the Bureau County Historical Society, Workman has put together a story of the sights and legends of the European settlers as well as Native Americans who found a good home in the countryside’s fertile land and plentiful water sources.
