Listen to the tale of “The Radium Girls” from a survivor of a tragedy that was kept from the public for so long. Guests will learn about the early days before each village had its own church from a “Circuit Rider”, a preacher who traveled the countryside spreading the gospel.  A strong woman, who fought the system, will tell how she became the first woman in Kane County to hold a position that had always been a man’s place. A special stop along the way will feature a memorial exhibit in honor of those who passed from this life one hundred years ago.
