TISKILWA —  Pam Lange, director of the Bureau County Historical Society, will share her photos and information on seven historic homes in and around Tiskilwa beginning at 7 p.m Monday at the Museum on Main in Tiskilwa.

All seven homes highlighted in her presentation were named in the 1975 Illinois Historic Structures Survey as places of “special interest because of their aesthetic, architectural and/or technological significance.”

Lange began researching facts for a 2009 presentation for Tiskilwa Historical Society, and she continued to chronicle the progress of two restorations begun the past five years.

The featured residences for this program, listed by the names of early owners (with current owners in parentheses), are those previously owned by John Stevens (Arik and Tania Bowen), George and Florence Kellogg (Robert Sash), Chauncey and Ann Dean (E.L. and Amy Porter) , Peter and Jane Bloom (Cecille Gerber), James and Clara Gardner (Stan and Marilea Bensen), Alanson and Sarah Benson (Charlie and Jane Fredenhagen), Chris Kitterman (Terry Helle), and St. Mary’s rectory (St. Mary Catholic Church).
