I admit it.  I am a history junkie.  Show me a busy road and I will show you where pioneers once blazed rough trails with their entire world inside a covered wagon.  Show me an old house and I will tell you a fantastic story of a family's history with memories and traditions.  I have lived in this area most of my life but I still love to explore new places. If you also fancy an adventure, you should plan a day out visiting Irving's museums. Most of them are free and they provide a vast array of this area's history.  Hop aboard my cyber wagon and I'll take you back to where Irving began.

Other area events await your arrival too, just visit our website's event page.

This Week's Exit, Stage Left

The relatively peaceful process of changing political leaders in our great nation began this week, and what better way to celebrate the end of early voting than with guns, girls, gossip and All That Jazz?  Yep. I am talking about CHICAGO, THE MUSICAL.  I hear it's the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.  Travel back to the roaring 20's where chorus girl Roxie Hart murders her lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap…until Amos finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Roxie gets sent to the pen and while waiting on death row, she and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines.  Neither woman will be outdone in their fight against each other and the public for fame and celebrity . . . and acquittal.  The musical begins this weekend and runs through November 19.
