Did you know that the sock monkey was invented in Rockford, Illinois? Or that the Rockford Peaches who inspired "A League of Their Own" once called the city home? Discover all of these things and more at the Midway Village Museum! I loved this unique opportunity to experience Rockford's history and learn more about this awesome community.
