Shilohs Rocking New Attraction:

Two significant additions to Shiloh — the Freedom Rock honoring those who serve in the military and a tribute to local heritage recognizing the contributions of German farmers — are now on display at a new village park under development. The stunning mural — the first Freedom Rock in the state — was unveiled recently during a dedication ceremony as was St. Clair County Historical Society’s interpretive sign spotlighting what is referred to as the “Latin farmers.” “It was a fabulous turnout. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback,” Shiloh Mayor Robert Weilmuenster said. “We’ve seen a lot of cars there. We still have work to do (on the park).”

Village officials, mayors from Belleville, Lebanon and Waterloo, guests, and residents at the new space at the intersection of South Main Street and Shiloh Station Road. “The village hopes that the Freedom Rock stands for generations in honor of all those who served and sacrificed to keep our great nation free,” Village Clerk Brenda Kern said.

Artist Ray “Bubba” Sorensen created the unique mural on a 10-ton rock. It is his newest addition to the 50-state Freedom Rock Tour. He began doing artwork to honor veterans 23 years ago — in his home state of Iowa — and now has 99 on view there. He has begun traveling to other states — next up is Ohio and Oklahoma. Four are already in Missouri. “The purpose is to thank veterans and show appreciation for their sacrifices and service — one rock at a time,” Sorensen said. While in Shiloh for about 10 days prior to Thanksgiving, Sorensen painted the rock in a heated tent. “The mayor and council members and volunteers were welcoming and helpful throughout, and even had a nice dinner with some Iowans who’ve relocated and started a successful business in the Shiloh area,” he said.
