Join the Rock County Historical Society for an evening of music and dining as they launch the Light the Way campaign, taking place on Sunday, June 28th from 5:30pm-8pm. This will be a tented event held on the lawn of the Lincoln-Tallman house, located at 440 N Jackson Street. There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres from artist Chef Rafe and Jazz entertainment provided by the Rock River Philharmonic!
Funds raised from the event will help re-illuminate the interior gas fixtures of the Lincoln-Tallman House. On November 2, 1869, the Tallman family enjoyed gas lighting for the first time – something that changed their world forever. In fact, they were one of the first families to bring gas lighting to Janesville. Our aim is to light the Lincoln-Tallman House once again, expanding possibilities for programming and continued rental use.
The cost for RCHS members is $60, and for non-members $75. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit http://www.rchs.us/lighttheway/, or RSVP at 608-756-4509 ext. 5. We hope you come out, support our cause, and restore history!
