From the Archives — October 2021: Ghosts of Galesburg

It’s time once again for our annual Ghosts of Galesburg event! 

If you’re not familiar, Ghosts of Galesburg is a walking tour through downtown Galesburg. We will visit significant sites in Galesburg history where a person from the city’s past will tell you about their life. The walk isn’t too long — usually less than a mile — and will include six stops. The tour will begin at the library at 6:30 PM on October 25. If you would like to attend but are unable to walk, there are limited spots on a tram available. Call us at (309) 343-6118 or email to reserve your spot! 

Can’t make the event? Don’t worry, we’ll have an online version as well. Beginning October 26, a virtual version of the tour will be available on our website. You’ll be able to click through the different stops and see videos — plus special bonus content — from the tour. If you would like to do the walk on your own time, download the PocketSights app (available on the Apple App Store or Android Play Store) and you can walk the route. When you get to a stop, a video and bonus content will appear. If you’re having trouble, just contact us and we’ll help you out.

Still not sure what to expect? Check out a couple videos from last year’s tour below!
