Illinois Turns 200 Podcast in Peoria

The series continues in Peoria to see where things play. The episode explores Frederick Douglass’s trek through town on a wintery night, the first people to call the place home, the colorful administration of Prohibition Era Mayor Edward Nelson Woodruff, the early years of LBGT activist and legend Howard Junior Brown, ideas for the future coming from Peoria’s Innovation Team, and what’s going on along the riverfront.

Refreshments will be served after the program.
