My Home. My History

  • February 16, 2016
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Public Lincoln Library, 326 South Seventh St., Springfield, IL

Personal stories of Sangamon County's rich history will feature presentations by several society members about a favorite historical object from their personal collections at the SCHS February 16 meeting. 

"My Home.  My History" will provide an opportunity for people to share their personal history which is not always seen in museums and books.  Through this program the stories often shared between friends and family are able to have a wider audience, and attendees will have the chance to learn about history from a personal viewpoint," said Genevieve Kaplan, program committee member.  

Some of the items and stories that will be presented include china pieces in the autumn leaves pattern, the new book Lincoln's Springfield, mementos from a long career in the Secret Service, and a collection of telegraph keys.  

Refreshments will be served.  The program is free and open to the public.
