Momence Heritage Day
June 8, 2019
Welcome to the city of Momence, Illinois! On the second Saturday of June each year, the community comes together for a celebration of our past, the people who founded and influenced our success, and the local and national events that shaped our history. Commencing in 2017 as a re-dedication of the Little Red Schoolhouse and a self-guided tour of Momence's historic sites, the Heritage Day event grew tremendously in its second year, and 2019 will have similar activities available at each of our museums, as well as in our historic downtown and on Island Park. The 2019 Heritage Day event will be focused mainly in the Civil War era, with a concentration on Momence connections to the war.
