Our next temporary exhibit will explore the history of the local reformatory school and its impact on the boys who attended it. Established in 1902, the Illinois State Home for Delinquent Boys exists today as the Illinois Youth Center.
Our “Murder on the Bayou” Murder Mystery Night on April 12 at Pheasant Run Resort was a huge success! The house was packed with over 70 supporters in attendance. The event had a unique St. Charles-themed twist, as the plot focused on the dealings of the will and estate of actual St. Charles resident Herbert Crane (1861-1943) and his family.
