Preserving some of the historical buildings in Cairo Illinois is the focus of a public event in Cairo planned for Saturday May 14th, 2022.

Charles McGinnis is the Board President of the Cairo Historical Association, which owns and operates Magnolia Manor, and he says he would like to see an increase in history tourism, and says if you don't understand your past history, you could make the same mistakes in the future.

In this feature, we will also hear from Cairo native Robin Patterson, one of the board members of the Cairo Historical Preservation Project.
