Historical Society to discuss ‘linens and things’ of the past

“Linens and Things of the 1800s Prairie Family” is the topic of the Tuesday, Oct. 23 meeting of the Grundy County Historical Society. 

Susie Johnson, president of the Gooselake Prairie Partners, will discuss what the settlers of the 1800s prairie would — and would not — have used for their textiles.  She will bring various samples of items they would have used in their prairie homes. 

This month’s meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Morris Public Library in the lower level beginning.  Note that this is a location change from the Society’s typical meetings held at the museum. Refreshments will be served after the program. 

The Grundy County Historical Society holds monthly meetings on fourth Tuesday of the months of September, October, February, March, April and May.

Visit the museum at 510 W. Illinois Ave., Morris, which is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.,  and by appointment for group tours. 

For information, call the GCHS at (815) 942-4880 or visit grundycountyhs.org.
