Dining in History is an annual MCHS event held at an historic property in Madison County where guests can enjoy a meal and learn about the venue through a program and guided tours. This year the Society is hosting the event at the Old Bakery Brew Company in Alton that is in the former Colonial Bakery building.
In earlier years participants have explored the Wildey Theatre, learned about the Alton Dam, and dined in the rotunda of the Madison County Courthouse to celebrate its Centennial. The Dining in History event also serves as the Society’s Annual Meeting for the purpose of electing Board members.
