Town Square Band Stand

Historical Marker being dedicated to ‘Beatle’ George Harrison who was the first of the ‘Fad Four’ to step foot in America. This was just before they became famous. He came to our town to visit his sister (on stage). Until recent years she ran a B & B inn called the ‘Hard Day’s Nite’. Visit Benton, IL 62812 to read the entire plaque.
This is also the home town of actor John Malkovich, his aunt Phyllis and John Jr., and others I don’t recall.

One thought on “Town Square Band Stand

  1. I have always seen an image where the Fab Four stepped out of a plane after landing in US but George Harrison was in this town before that?
