The Life of Abel Harwood
This month, our intern Azaan Qureshi will examine the life and accomplishments of Abel Harwood, a Champaign County pioneer, and the correspondence that is in the CCHM’s collection relating to him. Harwood was noted for his efforts toward the first Illinois state constitution and as the owner of the famous Harwood-Solon House on State Street, Champaign. Azzan's temporary exhibit on Abel Harwood is available for viewing now in our lobby.
