In 1893 a replica of a 9th century Viking ship made from Norwegian black oak sailed through the Eerie Canal and into Lake Michigan as part of the World Columbian Exposition. After years of being housed out of the public the view, the ship was moved to Geneva, Ill. where it is on display temporarily at Good Templar Park. Join us for fika on Sunday, Sept. 21 as we hear from Friends of the Viking Ship President Lorraine Straw on the history of and future for this unique Illinois’ landmark.
