Peoria Museum Sues To Get Pere Marquette Mural
(Peoria, IL) — A new owner will get Peoria’s Pere Marquette Hotel, but the city’s museum wants the hotel’s mural. Back in July, the Peoria Riverfront Museum filed a claim to get the portrait of Father Jacques Marquette meeting a group of Indians along the Illinois River in 1673. Museum managers say they own the decades old painting, and have just been loaning it to the hotel for the past 30 years.
