History Mystery Photo #8  In 1928 the General Federated Women entered and won The Cleanest Town in IL (based on size/population) for the Village of Heyworth. The Village of Heyworth also won this award in 1929 and 1930 through the efforts of the GFWC. If you know any more details of this event, or the people sitting for the picture we would love to know more information.  All three trophies are on display in the front case of the library until the end of April, along with a 1914 plat map of Randolph Township.  The trophies are on loan from the Village of Heyworth.
