GSC Travelogue > Destination: Heartland History

January 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- Free

Tuesday, January 18, 2022

1-2 p.m. | Zoom Webinar | Cost: FREE

The history of the Midwest is remarkable and often surprising. Fortunately, people realized early on that it was worth preserving.

Cynthia Clampitt will take us on a tour of destinations and events across the Greater Midwest that reveal how a region famed for supplying food actually supplied so much more, including iconic images, legendary individuals, and inventions that would change the world. From prehistory to present, Wild West to Wright Brothers, hear the tales and “visit” the museums, living-history venues, archaeological sites, historic towns, vintage farms, reenactments, and even restaurants that make the Midwest’s past accessible—and fun.
