2021 Peoria Historical Calendar Features Photos of Local Restaurants & Eateries
The 2021 Peoria Historical Calendar is now available. This year, the calendar features vintage photographs of local restaurants and eateries found over the years in Peoria. Many of the establishments featured in the calendar are no longer in existence but seeing these images will bring back delicious memories of some of the best places residents and visitors could enjoy a tasty meal or treat. The photographs and content for this year’s calendar were provided by the Peoria Historical Society, Bradley University Special Collections Center, Michael Seghetti and Daryl Klusendorf.
“The historical photos of local restaurants and eateries featured in the 2021 Peoria Historical Calendar are sure to bring back fond and mouthwatering memories for many residents and visitors of Peoria,” said Emily Watson, CityLink Director of Marketing and Public Relations. “The cover features a much-loved staple at the corner of Moss and Western, Jumer’s Castle Lodge Restaurant. Other well-known establishments featured include Hunt’s Family Restaurant, Vonachen’s Old Place, Bishop Buffet and many more,” continued Watson.
The 2021 Peoria Historical Calendar is available for a suggested donation of $5.00 at the CityLink Administrative Office (2105 NE Jefferson), and it will also be available at the CityLink Transit Center (407 SW Adams) once the lobby re-opens to the public. It makes for a great stocking stuffer for the local history buff on everyone’s Christmas shopping list. All proceeds collected will be donated to the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service.
