#37 – June 2017

 

In this issue… Lots of items about our Historic Bridge, a few details about our upcoming Vintage Days plans, and word of an investigation being launched into Sears Catalog homes in Long Grove.

Why is the Bridge Historic?

Long Grove’s Covered Bridge is historic because it is a rare surviving example of a classic bridge design and it continues to perform the same function in the same place, just as it has for over 100 years. The design retains it’s integrity and the pedestrian walkway feature makes it stand out against the few peers that it has.

History In A Flag

What makes my flag so special is that it did not come from reclaimed barn wood, but instead, from wood that was once part of our Long Grove covered bridge!
