Following a brief business meeting and presentation of our Nancy Fike Scholarship, the McHenry County Historical Society welcomes speaker Kay Shelton, president of the Lincoln Highway Association and former president League of Women Voters of DeKalb County, presents “The Women’s Suffrage Movement and the Good Roads Movement in Illinois.” Illinois was a national leader in both the Good Roads and the women’s suffrage movements. Illinois was the first state to have its segment of the Lincoln Highway paved in its entirety. Furthermore, the League of Women Voters was founded in Chicago in 1920. This free presentation, at the county history museum in Union, will link those firsts in Illinois history.
