The Western Illinois Museum will offer its annual Haunted Museum Tours on Saturday, October 14, 2017. The all-ages tours begin at 11:00 am and will run continuously until 1:00 pm. The program is part of the Moon Over Macomb activities and will be held at the Western Illinois Museum located at 201 South Lafayette Street, one block south of Macomb’s Courthouse Square. The event is free and open to the public; donations appreciated.
Get in the Halloween spirit with a little haunted historic fun. Museum re-enactors will take you back to 1938 when all the talk around town was about the Cub’s loss to the Yankees in the World Series and the radio was playing Bob Hope’s hit song, Thanks for the Memories. Featured this year will be favorites such as “Rock” Hanson and Olive Potter debating sports, Roy Sallee and Polly Pottle discussing why they enjoy teaching, Harrison Eller shows off his new Elgin bike, and Nellie Parsons will try to sell you one of those new RCA Victor Bakelite radios. Tricks will be part of the program, but it is sure to be a treat!
