Tales from the Vault Program moderated by Erika Holst, Curator of Art and History, Illinois State Museum

Thursday, January 3, 12:30 – 1:30 pm 

Research and Collections Center, 1011 E. Ash St, Springfield

Free, Donations Appreciated

The 18th amendment to the US Constitution banning the production, transport, and sale of intoxicating liquors was ratified on January 16, 1919.  One hundred years later, join us as Erika Holst shares liquor-related artifacts from the Illinois State Museum's collections to trace the history of alcohol consumption and the temperance movement in America, from Colonial times to the repeal of Prohibition. 

"Tales from the Vault" is a collaborative program hosted by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Illinois State Museum which allows the public to discover some of the treasures from these institutions' collections. Each program will include the chance to view an artifact or document not normally on display, commentary by a staff member or local scholar, and a chance for group discussion. All programs are free and open to the public.

The Research & Collection Center is located at 1011 E. Ash Street in Springfield. Collections Center's new Ash Street entrance must be approached from 11th Street or further east due to the rail closure at Ash and 10 ½ Streets. For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696.
