An Exhibit featuring Ancient Rome on the Hill

An Exhibit featuring Ancient Rome

Where in the world would you find public baths warmed by thermal springs, elevators lifting live wild animals onto an arena battlefield, paved roads throughout the empire, citizens dressed in ‘sheets,’ a currency system and grand monuments depicting ‘glorious’ dictators?

Where is the place that believers of a religious idea were martyred, yet later the society that carried out the executions adopted the teachings of same group, thereby changing the course of human history?

ROME!!  And you can learn more about it at the Hill Neighborhood Center!!

The Hill Neighborhood Center was invited to host a display on key features of ancient Rome with a highlight on the Vatican. Annette Graebe and Barbara Klein created the exhibit as part of Collinsville’s Italian Fest 2017.

After Collinsville, the exhibit traveled to the Hill where it will stay until December 17, 2017.

It then travels to Herrin, IL where many residents of Herrin and of the Hill share familial connections.

The Hill Neighborhood Center will have extended hours during the Rome exhibition. We’ll be open on:

Wednesdays 4pm-8pm

Thursdays 10am-6pm (closed Thanksgiving day)

Fridays 10am-3pm

Saturdays 10am-5pm

Any time is available by appointment. Please call!

The display is complimentary for all visitors (donations to the Center are welcome).

If you have questions, please call LynnMarie Alexander at the Center 314.260.9162 or at 314.556.2437
