Proceeds from this event will help to restore the front porch of our 1868 mansion.

One World’s catered lunch will include their delicious Bistro Salad, a combination of spring greens, romaine, walnuts, dried cranberries, diced apples, bleu cheese, with choice of apple-raspberry vinaigrette or buttermilk ranch dressing. Sides are fresh-cut fruit, baguette and dessert.

This fundraising event includes a tour of the house, featuring our new exhibit, “Luggage, Luxury and Louis”. On display are 22 vintage travel items, some of which are steamer trunks, wardrobes, hat and shoe trunks. Seven pieces are Louis Vuitton, and the amazing history of the Louis Vuitton Company will be discussed.

Tickets are $50., and available at 309tix.com or by contacting the Peoria Historical Society office, 309-674-1921. Reservations and payment must be made in advance, as space is limited.

Come to see outstanding examples of how people once packed to travel, while helping to improve and save our Historic home.
