Woodstock library hosting speaker on local history

WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Public Library is hosting a speaker on "The Earliest Trails of McHenry County" Thursday.

Anderson will also talk about the Native Americans, Fort Dearborn soldiers, traders and French Canadians who were in the county before that period.
