Sophisticated exhibits tell region’s story
Sunday marks the grand opening for two new exhibits at the Dixon Historic Center that detail the lives of Native Americans and early settlers. We encourage the public to attend.
The Black Hawk War in 1832 was a watershed event for the Sauk Valley region.
Before the war, the Sauk tribe inhabited much of northern Illinois, including this area. Settlers were few and far between.
After the war, the decimated Sauk were banished from Illinois and forced to move westward. Settlers began to flood the region.
