Episode 93 - LaSalle County Historical Society: Amanda and Davey Carter #1

On this episode of the IV Podcast, we sit down with Amanda and Davey Carter to discuss the LaSalle County Historical Society and the wonderful things they do. There is so much interesting history in our area, and we do our best to cover as much as we can. We talk Burgoo, Wild Bill Hickok, LaSalle Mission Cemetery, Indian Creek Massacre, Chief Shabbona, Mattheissen, Ottawa Tent Colony, Harness Horse Racing, and Amos Ebersol. There were a few more stories mixed in there too! Check it out and don’t forget to visit the LaSalle County Historical Society website to sign up for membership. It’s a valuable part of the Illinois Valley and greater Starved Rock area, and a membership will go a long way in helping to preserve our area’s history. Oh, and sorry for the barking dog during the first minutes of the show. Hang in there and it will end by the 7:00 minute mark.
