The LaSalle County Historical Society Museum is located in Utica, Illinois. The main Museum building is housed in a stone warehouse built in 1848 along the Illinois and Michigan Canal. Included in the Museum complex are an 1865 one-room schoolhouse, an 1875 barn and an 1892 blacksmith shop.
Among the Historical Society's many programs and events probably the best known is the Burgoo Festival, held every year on the Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend. Along with the Burgoo stew, a pioneer dish cooked slowly over a wood fire, the Festival includes over 200 craft and flea market vendors who sell their wares on the streets of downtown Utica.
