History in the Making

If you go to our Flickr page, we have a new set up photographs up called History in the Making.  This is a collection of photos taken around town over the past couple years that show what modern life is like in Elmwood Park.  We would love to get some of your photos from any era of local landmarks, social activities, and anything else of historical interest for our collection and site.  You can email materials to Russ Parker at or mail them to Russ Parker 1 Conti Parkway Elmwood Park, IL 60707.
