We've placed honorary signs at all 15 locations of the Tiskilwa's former country schools.  This project was possible through the Board's efforts in research and design, the financial support of 24 historical society members, and the physical labor of a special few members who installed the signs in 2013. Neighbors of the several of the school sites have volunteered to do a bit of landscaping, plant perennials, and maintain the area around each sign. 

You may want to take a virtual tour, here and now, and print out the map. Then the next time you’re in or around The Gem of the Valley you can locate each site, up close and personal.  Several local enthusiasts have already made the circuit on a self-guided tour.
