April 19 Program in Tiskilwa Features How to Promote Our Historical Assets

The rich history of Bureau County is a source of pride that numerous local history and cultural organizations continuously strive to share with residents and visitors alike. Often, the challenge is finding ways to get the word out to the public. To meet this challenge in new and exciting ways, the Tiskilwa Historical Society and 140 East, the National Register Stevens Home, will host a program on Wednesday, April 19, in collaboration with the Illinois Association of Museums.

The 3:00 p.m. presentation at Tiskilwa’s Museum on Main, 110 East Main Street, will be followed by a 4:30 networking and behind-the-scenes tour of the newly renovated 140 East Main, an 1842 historic home.

Featured speaker Sara Phalen, IAM board member, will guide a discussion of how local cultural organizations can work together to promote and highlight the good work being done by their groups. She will suggest free and low-cost tools available to museums and historic sites as well as funding streams for collaboration.

These events will be free to community organizations as well as members of the public who are interested in getting more involved in promoting our area’s historical resources for personal or business purposes.

Questions and RSVPs may be sent to or call 815.751.0551. This presentation is being held in collaboration with the IAM spring conference. To register for additional virtual programming April 19-21, visit
