Illinois Adventure #1205

Okawville, located 40 miles east of St. Louis, was once a popular resort town known for its baths and museums that hearken back to a different era. This program visited there, and also took an old-fashioned ride on a stagecoach, learned how Abraham Lincoln's parents lived at the Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site in Lerna, and talked to a gentleman who collected stories and investigated hauntings across the Midwest.
