We don't often think about the things that are happening today as being historic but they are. And today our history is all about COVID-19 and the terrible impact it is having on our lives. We are in the middle of that historic battle.
As we face this individually and collectively we need to save our stories about this world-wide pandemic - save this history for history. What are your thoughts? What adjustments have you made to your life? What are you doing differently today?
Share your story, your thoughts, your challenges, your fears, your triumphs by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll collect what you send us during this truly difficult and demanding time as an important part of the history of our community.
For more information and to help you get started use these resources.
One day even the coronavirus and COVID-19 will be history!
The mission of the Flagg Township Historical Society and Museum is to stimulate interest in Flagg Township history through education, research, collection and preservation of information for the benefit of the public of today and in the future.
Located in the old City and Town Hall at 518 4th Avenue in downtown Rochelle, Illinois.
The building was constructed in 1884 and is on the National Historic Register.
The original City and Town Hall included the fire station, jail, and a large room upstairs for community gatherings.
When the new City Hall was planned concerned citizens and the Flagg Township Historical Society wanted to save the old building. The Historical Society was able to purchase the building for $1 and make it a museum for the people of Rochelle and Flagg Township.
