Event details

This ongoing program runs from Friday, March 1, to Friday, May 31. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.

In 1818, Illinois gained statehood and settlers migrated from all over to stake a claim to the new land. Together, they raised barns and families that grew into communities. One of those early families was the Clows. “Raising Riverview” is a new temporary exhibit at Isle a la Cache Museum that focuses on Thomas Clow and his family, who started their own farm along the DuPage River in southern Naperville. In this exhibit, explore the tools, grit and resources needed to build a successful farm, to build a community in Wheatland Township and to build a legacy that lives on with the Forest Preserve District of Will County.

This exhibit was developed by museum staff, with the support of The Nature Foundation of Will County.
