100 Year Old Home exhibit at City Hall

March 26, 2019 11:13 AM

A new exhibit has opened in the first floor main lobby of Park Ridge’s City Hall.  The exhibit, assembled by members of the City’s Historic Preservation Committee, celebrates some of the buildings in our community, mostly residences, that are at least 100 years old.  The exhibit was on display at the Park Ridge Library during the month of February but has now been relocated to City Hall.  You are welcome to come and visit the exhibit and enjoy learning more about the history of Park Ridge. 

The color photos were taken and mounted by Commissioner John Mackin; the black and white photos are from Park Ridge, Illinois: A Photo History, a project guided by Nancy Blouin and sponsored by the Park Ridge Heritage Committee that was published in 1994.

The Historic Preservation Commission is interested in recognizing more homes and buildings that are centenarians in our City.  If your home is 100 years old, please contact City Planner Jon Branham  at 847/318-5203.  You will receive a Certificate affirming your home’s place in our City’s history.  There are no fees attached to this recognition, nor are any limitations placed should you wish to build an addition or make changes to your home. 

In an effort to acknowledge 100 year old homes, the Commission is interested in recognizing the rich history of our community which is evidenced in our buildings.
