2024 Peoria Historical Calendar is Now Available & Features Local Educational Institutions
The 2024 Peoria Historical Calendar is available. This year, the calendar features vintage photographs of local educational institutions, including public and private schools, and a very early photo of students at Bradley Polytechnic Institute, now called Bradley University. Education has long been an important part of Peoria’s history, and the individual history of each of the featured schools provides a fascinating look back at how each institution has evolved to fit the needs of the students and teachers, as well as the growth of Peoria over the years.
Since 1990, CityLink has produced the Peoria Historical Calendar to showcase the rich history this area has to offer. The photographs for this year’s calendar were provided by the Virginius H. Chase Special Collections Center at Bradley University and the Peoria Historical Society.
The 2024 Peoria Historical Calendar is available for a suggested donation of $5.00 at the CityLink Administrative Office (2105 NE Jefferson) and the CityLink Transit Center (407 SW Adams) during designated Customer Service hours. Local retailer Urban Artifacts (925 N. Sheridan) is also selling the calendar for a suggested donation of $5.00. It makes for a great stocking stuffer for local history buffs. All proceeds collected will be donated to the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service.
