Info

Vachel Lindsay Home and Vachel Lindsay Association are now presenting monthly poetry hours aimed at children. Each one will be devoted to a different subject that’s sure to entertain and educate.

On Feb. 16, it’s African-American themes. March 16 brings poems of spring. April 20 will be devoted to poems about poetry. And on May 18, as the school year ends, the focus will be poems about summer. The poetry hours begin at 10 a.m.

The Lindsay home was built about 1850. Poet, author and artist Nicholas Vachel Lindsay was born there in 1879 and died there in 1931. The home, operated by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for free public tours.
