“Evansville on the Kaskaskia” book now available to order

The Evansville Heritage Committee is announcing the re-publication of the 1976 commemorative book, “Evansville on the Kaskaskia.”

Renewed interest has been shown regarding the early history of Evansville. The book, “Evansville on the Kaskaskia,” was originally published in 1976 as part of the national bicentennial celebration. The book documents the Village of Evansville’s past through 1976, its early settlement and development.

The new copies of the book will have a hard cover, but all from the original copy will be the same.

Copies of the re-print can be ordered online at https://www.courtmoney.com/payments/info/form/Evansville_Illinois_on_the_Kaskaskia, or by calling Evansville Village Clerk Beth Wunderlich at 618-853-2613.
