Asa Crook one of the original settlers of Prophetstown stopped by his old home on Saturday to greet visitors and tell them a bit about his life.
Crook was part of the Prophetstown Area Historical Society’s Fall Festival held at the Crook home on East Third Street in Prophetstown.
Refreshments were served and musical entertainment was provided by Dan Eads of Prophetstown playing music on his Native American wooden flutes.
Crook settled in Prophetstown in 1834 with his family and originally built a cabin near the mouth of Coon Creek on the Rock River. He eventually built the house, now maintained by the historical society, in 1839. Asa Crook Family History.
