This exciting program gives participants the chance to enjoy dining at locally-owned restaurants while listening to a fun and informative presentation. It is a great opportunity to discover local eateries while learning about the history of Linn County! Ticket sales will be open to members only for the first week, at which points tickets become available to the public. If you're not a member, consider signing up on our membership page

If tickets are sold out, you can ask to be placed on a waiting list. The waiting list will be used if tickets become available or if an encore presentation is scheduled, in which case those people on the list will receive first notice and the option to purchase tickets.


Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online, via phone at (319) 362-1501, or at the Front Desk of The History Center.
