Prairie Tales

April 26, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

History lovers and quaint-town aficionados will appreciate this trip. We’ll start at the Seneca Area Heritage Museum, housed in a restored depot, and then take a guided tour of the last remaining grain elevator on the I&M Canal. We’ll also visit the Seneca Prairie Shipyard, where 157 Landing Ship Tanks (LSTs) were built and launched during World War 2. Additional stops may include related “Boom Town” sites, a historic “mini cathedral,” and more. $40 per person. We’re donating 20% of the net proceeds – 10% to the Seneca Historical Guild and 10% to the Seneca Mural Project. Reservations are required. Payment of cash only will be accepted on day of event. Meet us at least 15 minutes prior to check in and pay at the Seneca Area Heritage Museum, 431 N. Main St, Seneca, IL.
