This set Galvaland Magazines can be yours

 Add these
GALVALAND MAGAZINES 
to your library

The Galvaland Magazine was published by George Swank every two months from August, 1958, to January, 1996. It consists of 327 issues of approximately 20 pages each. The Bishop Hill Old Settlers’ Association has recently acquired a set these original volumes which includes an index and user’s guide.
These survived a house fire in Bishop Hill and are in good, albeit smoky condition. The BHOSA is offering this collection to any person or organization interested in adding a remarkable record of local historical news to their personal library. If you would like to claim them, please email the BHOSA President, Cinda Anderson, or call her at 309-927-3044.
