Historical society to open with Woodstock exhibit

UNION – The McHenry County Historical Society will host the museum’s grand opening Sunday with the “Return to Woodstock, An All-American City” exhibit.

It contains memorabilia from two important anniversaries in 1963: Woodstock’s full-court effort to become an All-American City and the start of the historical society. The exhibit also touches on volunteerism, new amenities, shopping, cultural touchstones and industries.

Society members are invited to a 12:30 p.m. group photo commemorating the society’s golden anniversary. That will be followed by a roundtable discussion at 1:15 p.m. about the life in Woodstock 50 years ago. Guest panelists will be longtime Woodstockians Jo Smith, Alice Nulle, Sherry Anderson, Don Peasley, Jim Keefe and Alan Belcher.

Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served.
