Historical Society members will meet

MORRIS – A long time resident of White Willow will be a guest speaker at the April meeting of the Grundy County Historical Society.

Ron Severson, Grundy County Board chairman, will speak to members and guests of GCHS at 7 p.m. April 22 at the museum, 510 W. Illinois Ave., Morris.

He will talk about the establishment of the town of White Willow in order to have a post office there. One prerequisite of having a post office in any town was to have it listed on an Illinois map.  

White Willow was two miles east of Route 47 on White Willow Road. At the demise of the town, its school and store were developed into residential homes that still remain there. 

The public is invited to attend GCHS’s meetings and programs.

The museum’s 5th anniversary open house will be celebrated from 5 to 8 p.m. May 6. 

Many activities are planned for that night including speakers at various locations in the building. Everyone is invited to this milestone event. Call the museum for an invitation, 815-942-4880. New members and guests are always welcome.
