The Fern Dell Historic Association will host a driving tour to four churches near the Kendall/LaSalle county border on July 27. Participants can tour the Newark Lutheran Church, Sheridan United Methodist Church, Millington United Methodist Church and the Millbrook United Methodist Church.
The driving tour starts at 10 a.m. at the Fern Dell Museum, 9 E. Front St., Newark, to register and pick up tickets and maps. The tour will proceed to Newark Lutheran, then on to Sheridan Methodist. The route then goes Millington Methodist for a hot old-time church luncheon, then to Millbrook Methodist for an old-time ice cream social and prize drawing. Each church will give a 30-minute program on church history. All four churches have been in existence more than 100 years.
Cost for the tour (drive your own vehicles) is $10 for the day. For information, call 630-957-7846 or 815-695-5656.
