Starting in April, the Bishop Hill Heritage Association will once again be offering guided tours of historic Bishop Hill for groups and organizations.  Led by expert guides, learn about the Bishop Hill Colony, which was started in 1846 by Swedish immigrants. 18 pre-Civil War buildings are still in use today in Bishop Hill as museums, businesses, and more. The BHHA offers a 1.5 hour walking tour or a step-on tour of this National Historic Landmark village. Below are a tour confirmation form and a tour description that provides more details. If you have any questions or would like to book a tour, please call us at 309 927-3899 or email us at

We hope your group or organization will consider visiting Bishop Hill, Illinois and experiencing this Utopia on the Prairie!
