The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is pleased to announce the gift of $10,000 from the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation for 2015 educational programming. This money will be used to support the 2015 Bishop Hill Civil War Days on May 8 and May 9. Part of the funding will also be used to build a traveling exhibit about the Bishop Hill Colony. The portable exhibit will be created in partnership with the Bishop Hill State Historic Site. The Heritage thanks the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation for its continued support of our educational efforts.
