Reception and opening for Travel Exhibit

Exhibit Reception: “Greetings from Des Plaines,” Thursday,
August 7, 5-7 p.m. (Presentation at 6)
Please join us as we celebrate the opening of the new travel exhibit at the History Center! “Greetings from Des Plaines” includes information on many aspects of travel as Des Plaines developed during the 19th and 20th centuries. In the exhibit, you can view artifacts and postcards and pack an immigrant trunk for a transatlantic move. We also invite members of the community to send us a postcard this year as they travel, even if it’s just a trip to Chicago!
