Old Settlers Meeting, August 14 and 15, 1894.  20K folks came from all around to help honor the first settlers of Coles, Edgar, and Douglas counties right here on Hoag Branch.  Our Old Settlers Day will celebrate the 125 years since then with living history in the schoolhouse, general store, blacksmith shop, and homestead cabins. We'll have old fashioned music, games, costumes and maybe take a photo or two. No Settlers Day would be complete without Cornbread and Beans so come on by the Chuckwagon and help us celebrate where it all began for these East Central IL counties.
