Binding Our State Together: 20 Years of Canals, Railroads, Postal Service, Interurbans, and Roads
Tuesday, December 3 | 6:00 p.m. | Community Room
Presented by: Presented by: Illinois Humanities Road Scholars Speakers Bureau—
Dr. Norman Moline
In Illinois, as in most places, people and communities have sought to connect with other places for personal, cultural, economic, and political reasons. Our territory was changed from a sparsely settled and minimally connected area to a place with an extensive set of linkages between communities and regions. Transportation and postal service developments have been key factors in shaping our state’s history and character.
