To the Editor:
The McHenry County Historical Museum in Union is open for the season. Thanks to all of the guests and volunteers who joined us May 3 for the craft beer tasting and grand unveiling of our new exhibit: “Prairie Trails to Strange Tales: McHenry County’s Earliest Years.”
Special thanks to local craft brewers Scorched Earth Brewing Co. in Algonquin, Crystal Lake Brewing, McHenry Brewing Co., Sew Hop’d Brewery and Tap Room in Huntley, ShadowView Brewing in Woodstock and Michigan-based Lucky Girl Brewing Co., which hopes to open facilities in Richmond, McHenry and East Dundee soon.
The museum is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and on the third Saturday of the month, through December. Exhibits curator Kira Stell’s new exhibit – in our new, first-floor Anderson Gallery – will leave you wanting more.
Local history does that. It draws you in and entices you to come back for another helping. For a full schedule of McHenry County Historical Society and Museum activities, visit www.gothistory.org.
