Heritage Day

Re-dedication of the Little Red School House
125 West Fifth Street, Momence, IL

Saturday, September 17, 2017 was a day of celebration for the City of Momence. Heritage Day spotlighted 10 historically significant places and monuments as a self-guided history tour. Spearheaded by the ladies of the Mt. Airy Little Red School House Board, Heritage Day activities began with the raising of the new flag and pole donated by the Jake Munyon family and a re-dedication of the school house after renovations were completed through the generosity of the Van Drunen family.

Besides the Little Red School House, the other historic places on the tour included:

  • The Graham Historic House & Museum
  • The Momence Depot
  • The Pioneer Cabin at Conrad Park
  • The Civil War Soldier Monument in the brand new Lions Park
  • Kasler Memorial Park
  • Admiral Boorda Memorial at Conrad Park
  • The Hess Marker on Rt. 114
  • The Hubbard Trail Marker on Rt. 1-17
