Arthur: This is Our Story


Arthur, Illinois, population 1,600, is “The Heart of the Illinois Amish Country,” a place where “You are a Stranger Only Once.” For this 7th edition of a continuing series we invited Arthur’s leading citizens too help us shape the program. We partnered with the newspaper. We trained 28 residents as “storytellers,” who captured video footage, provided photos and memorabilia. Their work was edited into a 2-hour program that became a treasured experience of community celebration, made possible by WEIU TV.
