Join the Canal Corridor Association for the dinner lecture Highways Through Time at the Gaylord Building on September 20th 2018. The story of this region is best understood not as the impact of the Chicago Portage, or the I&M canal, or the Chicago and Alton Railroad, or Route 66; but as the trajectory of thousands of years as the nexus of transportation, trade, and commerce. Join Midewin Archaeologist Joe Wheeler as we look at that history and prehistory, and search for vestiges of it still visible on the land today.

Reservations required. For more information visit www.iandmcanal.org or call (815)220-1848x1838
