Bishop Hill Heritage Association Receives Six Figure Grant from Henry County


The Bishop Hill Heritage Association received some very good news following their weekend Lucia Nights celebration. On Monday, Henry County award the BHHA a grant of $111,000 from the American Rescue Plan. These ARP funds have been specifically designated to help groups like Bishop Hill Heritage Association, areas of the economy hit hardest by the COVID-19 shutdowns of 2020-2021. The grant could not come at a better time for the Bishop Hill Heritage Association which recently announced a new yearly event, a Civil War Days festival set to start in May of 2023. In a statement, members of the BHHA said “Funding from this grant will be used to enhance Bishop Hill’s tourism development in 2023.” They continued their statement saying “The BHHA thanks Henry County and its board for their most generous support.”
