The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is proud to announce that it has recently been given a $111,000 grant from Henry County, approved by the Henry County Board.  Money for this grant came from America Rescue Plan funds.  The BHHA is a private non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the unique heritage of the Bishop Hill Colony and its legacy.   Funding from this grant will be used to enhance Bishop Hill’s tourism development in 2023.  The grant will be used to create the following new activities in 2023:  a Civil War Days festival in May, a summer park concert series, and an ad campaign promoting historic Bishop Hill as a tourist destination.   Other events and programs are also in the works.  The BHHA thanks Henry County and its board for their most generous support.
