Sesquicentennial addendum now available at BAHS


An addendum to the 2015 Braidwood Sesquicentennial commemorative book is now available to those who purchased the book following the successful celebration of the city’s 150th anniversary.

The books were created by the members of the Sesquicentennial Committee, and are being sold at the Braidwood Area Historical Society Depot Museum.

BAHS member Dee deGroh said a handful of businesses were inadvertently left out of the original book, but are now included inside the addendum.

The BAHS is also selling the completed DVD of Braidwood’s Sesquicentennial musical, “15 Decades of Work and Play,” as well as events celebrated throughout 2015.

The DVD includes information and photos from “A Las Vegas Evening,” a fun-filled fundraiser for the Sesquicentennial.

Also included on the DVD are pieces from the musical, the 2015 Summerfest Parade, the time capsule burial, and the Legacy Garden in Old Smokey City Park.

The DVD is available for a $10 donation to the BAHS.

The museum is open Saturdays and Sundays from noon until 3 p.m.
