Signposts on the Prairie
Please join our friends, the Ravenswood Lake View Historical Association as they present, “Signposts on the Prairie” with Krista August. Take a virtual road trip to “Little Egypt” and learn why Southern IL is considered to be “Where Illinois Began.” Encounter “signposts” that recall prehistoric IL; early French settlement in the American Bottom; a consequential Revolutionary War campaign, recreational stops, National Natural Landmarks and more!

What we're about

Meet others in your local area interested in the history of Chicago's northwest side neighborhoods. We will accomplish this through discussion at meetings, public tours and events, and dissemination of historical documents and photos though publications. Additionally, we desire to collaborate with others in the community to continue to maintain and preserve the history of our collective neighborhoods. By linking the past with the present and the future, we will provide awareness and create appreciation for our place in Chicago’s and Illinois’ history.
