Haunted Southern Illinois

October 16, 2019

The Jefferson County Historical Society is proud to present a Haunted Southern Illinois presentation by Kari Dillingham on Saturday, October 19 at 2:00 p.m. in the Schweinfurth Museum at the Historical Village. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

Kari Dillingham has been teaching Spanish and Social Studies classes at Centralia High School since 2004. Before becoming an educator, she earned degrees from Southeast Missouri State University, University of Tennessee, and Southern Illinois University. To spice up some of the dryer details for her students, she included ghostly and eerie stories about places, such as Starved Rock, Kaskaskia and the Old Slave House. Since Europeans first made their way down the Illinois andMississippi Rivers, there have been strange and creepy tales to share about the land of Illinois.

The Jefferson County Historical Village is located at 1411 N. 27th St. in Mt. Vernon. Visit historicjeffersoncountyil.com for more information.
