Collectors and Diners...

The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is organizing the 4th annual Collectors Weekend on Saturday October 14 and Sunday October 15, 2017. What is Collectors Weekend? It is the opportunity for local collectors to show off their treasures to the public.

For one weekend only at the Steeple Building Museum, display your collections, whether they are cap pistols, porcelain dolls, or other antique/vintage items. The BHHA will provide the site and the promotion; you will provide the display.

If you are interested in participating in this year's Collectors Weekend and would like to show off your treasurers, please call 309 927-3899 or email bhha@mymctc.net for more details. Items are for display only, not for sale.




In addition, the BHHA is hosting the premiere of Dinner and Drama at the Dairy on the evening of Saturday, October 14. For this fundraising event, a Swedish Meatball Dinner will be provided by the Filling Station. The dinner will be at the Dairy Building, located at 410 North Erickson Street. Following the meal, attendees will drive around Bishop Hill in people movers, provided by the Galva American Legion. As you tour Bishop Hill, historical figures from our past will step out and take you back to their time with stories from Colony days.

The cost of the dinner and the historical drama is $25 per ticket. Dinner times are 5:30 and 7 p.m. Call 309 927-3899 or email bhha@mymctc.net to order your ticket today, while supplies last. Proceeds from this event benefit BHHA activities.
