fall schedule of events and dinner lectures:

The opening event will occur on Friday, September 2nd,

“Art and Music on the Prairie”

5 p.m. - 8 p.m.




It promises to be a relaxing combination of art, music and food.   As it is the beginning of the Labor Day Weekend, an interesting topic of “Original Art” will be presented in an “art walk style”, while allowing for a tranquil stroll through Elkhart’s unique shops: Horsefeather’s, Birdsong, and the Country Bumpkin.  Popular artists: Lette Marseille, Felicia Olin, Sheri Ramsey, and Catherine Coates Flynn will have their art displayed throughout the shops.  A short talk on the value of original art, combined with live music, and scrumptious hors d'oeuvres and a refreshing beverage prepared by The Wild Hare Cafe, will make this a most enjoyable evening.  Advanced reservations are recommended by calling:  217-947-2238, the cost is $15 per person or $25 per couple, students with I.D.’s $10.  The deadline for advance reservations is August 30. The Country Bumpkin can accept Credit Card payment for this event.  The cost at the door the night of the event will be $20 per person and $35 per couple.  Additional information about the event will be on the Elkhart Historiical Society website with reservations forms that can be downloaded.
