The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is continuing its fundraiser to raise money for the 1851 Carpenter Building Exterior Restoration Project. Even though most of the project is completed, we are still raising money to put some finishing touches on the structure this spring.

By sponsoring a hod of bricks for $200 or sponsoring a window for $500, you can help us preserve one of the oldest remaining Bishop Hill Colony brick buildings. Besides helping us to preserve a part of U.S. and Swedish history, the BHHA is a 501c3 so your donation is tax deductible.  For more information about this fundraiser and how you can help save the Carpenter Shop, please call 309 927-3899 or email
