Dieterich Historical Book
In March 1893, the adjoining communities of Graceville and Dieterich voted to incorporate, forming the community of Dieterich. In 2018, Dieterich will celebrate its 125th or Quasquicentennial! The Historical Book Committee will be creating a book recording the history of Dieterich, Illinois. The history will include churches, family histories, businesses, schools, memorials/tributes, organizations, and much more!
How can my family or business be a part of the book?
Contribute a history of your family or business, especially family as it relates to Dieterich, Illinois, along with photos(s) before March 31, 2018. The more that submit history the better the book will be. Visit the "Book Submission" page for instructions, limits, and deadlines.
Can I submit other Dieterich history and pictures for inclusion in the book?
