One of the area’s most famous and infamous native sons is being celebrated later this week.

Officials in Troy Grove are planning a “Wild Bill Hickock Day” Sunday at the city park across from Wild Bill’s monument.  Besides food and kids games, organizers plan on offering horse and wagon rides, live shootout re-enactments, historic cemetery tour and gun and photo exhibits.  The event runs from 11 until 3.

Wild Bill was born in Troy Grove on May 27th, 1837.
