QUINCY (WGEM) - A local travel agency celebrates its 40th anniversary, the agents reflect on getting through the ups and downs the industry has gone through.

Agent Sheryl Stratton said she opened the Travel House of Quincy in May of 1983 as a free-standing agency.

Since then, travel websites have created a lot more competition, and COVID-19 nearly shut down tourism for awhile.

Stratton credits their forward thinking and personal approach.

“Well, we go ourselves and offer first-hand information and we study and stay current and keep up with the times and we love it,” Stratton said. “We love the industry and the next best thing to taking a trip, is sending someone on one.”

The company invited the public to come visit and enjoy catered food and drinks at an open house.

Those who came also had the opportunity to enter a drawing to win a travel gift certificate.
