A copy of a personal letter from Charles Lindbergh to Captain James Lovell is just one of the fascinating artifacts you’ll see in the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Historical Society’s Local Legends Exhibit opening this Sunday, April 8.
Since 2010, “Local Legends” has been the LF-LB Historical Society’s annual, signature event. One-on-one interviews in front of a live audience has proven to be the perfect setting for sharing their legendary stories. Now there’s a unique opportunity to get a little more up close and personal with these people who continue to shape our world. “Local Legends: The Exhibit” recognizes each Legend’s contribution to history with fascinating items from their personal collections.
“Reconnecting with these generous people has been both rewarding and fun,” says Katie Hale, Historical Society Board Member who also guest-curated the exhibit. “Just imagine the variety of stories, the breadth of experience they represent–and the collective impact they’ve had on our past and future!”
The exhibit will include personal mementos and artifacts from Local Legends including John Bryan, Bill Kurtis and Donna La Pietra, Captain James Lovell, Richard Marx, Franklin and Mark McMahon, Ryne Sandberg, Ellen Stirling and Adrian Smith will be on display through June 24.
“Local Legends: The Exhibit” opens Sunday, April 8 during the Historical Society’s “Masters” Open House from 2-4 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
