Forgotten Chicago Presentation on Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village

Join our friends at Forgotten Chicago for a free lecture on the history of the overlooked Northwest Side neighborhood of Avondale. Home to Chicago’s Polish Village, majestic church architecture and the spectacular former Olson Waterfall, this presentation will shed light on some of the little known history of the area — including its fascinating industrial history.

The presentation will be given by Jacob Kaplan, Editor of Forgotten Chicago and Dan Pogorzelski, VP of our NW Chicago Historical Society, two of the co-authors of the forthcoming book Images of America: Avondale and Chicago’s Polish Village.

When? Thursday May 23, 6 PM.
Where? Logan Square Library, 3030 W. Fullerton, Chicago. Two blocks south and one block east of the Logan Square Blue Line. Free parking available.
How much? Free.
More information? Call the library at (312) 744-5295.

    I cannot get out of work early, as I had planned, but my friend, Michaelene Brown, will still be attending. She's another NW Side girl!
