Bartlett History Museum to host Prohibition Presentation at Village Hall

February 27 @ 7:00 pm

“Remember Prohibition? Don’t let it happen again!” was the wording on a 1940s poster that hung in Bartlett’s Eck Tavern once located at 121 W. Railroad Ave. During the Prohibition era, 1920 until 1933, it was illegal in the United States to import, transport, produce and sell alcoholic beverages.
Join the Bartlett History Museum for the free “Prohibition: A Crash Course in Chicago’s Most Notorious Era” presentation by Jonathan Knotek, co-founder of Chicago Prohibition Tours. He will share how Prohibition began, the groups that backed and opposed it, its ratification, implementation, problems, failure and repeal, while also talking about all the famous/infamous names along the way.
The program will be held at Bartlett Village Hall, 228 S. Main St. Doors open at 6:30 P.M. for refreshments, with a 6:45 P.M. pre-program presentation by the museum looking at Bartlett during the Prohibition-era, if you would like to come early.
Knotek’s presentation begins at 7:00 P.M.
