Local History, Art, and Stories Sneak Peek


The Lincoln Highway Association will hold its annual conference in Dixon this June. At some point, there will be a public call for artists, photographers, storytellers, historians, and anyone else interested to participate in an artists’ reception and/or to write their recollections of the Lincoln Highway in Illinois for a booklet. You heard it here first.

Now you all know why I have an eye on Dixon’s petunias. Mayor Jim Burke even has petunias on his business cards.

By the way, it looks like the folks in Dixon know how to plug business development, and keep their citizens educated in TIF.
