  • Native American Ghosts Stories

    As autumn’s chill descends and summer ends, Native People will gather around the bonfire for a bone chilling evening of monsters and mayhem, ghosts and spirits from the world beyond. There will be drumming songs and a chance to sing-a-long!

    Bring a lawn chair, bring a snack, bring a friend.

    Come early to dine and shop during Bishop Hill’s Second Annual Harvest Moon Celebration!
