Discover and explore the fascinating history of Bishop Hill and surrounds by visiting one or all of the 7 museums created and maintained by these organizations. The artifacts and buildings are original to the town and many of our residents are descendants of original settlers.
The organizations of Bishop Hill work together to preserve this special 19th century community for the many visitors who come from all over the world to explore and experience what Bishop Hill has to offer. Bishop Hill organizations depend on volunteers to make things happen. Special event weekends, tours, gardening, ticket taking cleaning, renovating and the publication of the visitor guide and this website can only happen with the dedication of our volunteers. Consider volunteering once a week, once a month or for one event and help to preserve and nurture this unique historical town.
