Illinois Bend School to receive state historical marker

The Texas Historical Commission recently designated the historic Illinois Bend school as a historical Texas school.

The Illinois Bend Community Club will conduct a ceremony to dedicate the official Texas historical marker awarded to this historical school.

School bells will likely be ringing as this proud community celebrates their second such THC official honor one day shy of a year from the THC cemetery marker dedicated April 26, 2014.

This ceremony will be celebrated at 2 p.m. April 25 at the pavilion by the school house.

All those interested are welcome to attend. Read the full story in the mid-week News.
