Elgin opens 34 architectural gems to public on Saturday

• Imago Creative Studios, 216 Prairie St.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

• The Nancy Kimball cobblestone house at 302 W. Chicago St. Built just 11 years after the first settlers arrived, it is one of the oldest homes in town and is now being rehabbed by Elgin Area Historical Society.

• Senior Services Associates at 101 S. Grove Ave., built in 1930 in the unusual Zigzag Moderne Art Deco style. The former home of Elgin's Salvation Army corps.

    Elgin's architectural gems open to public on April 21
    Curious people will have to wait another year before they get a chance to personally inspect the "new" 89-year-old Elgin Tower Building. But the second Open Elgin Day on Saturday afternoon, April 21, will open the insides of almost three dozen other buildings -- many of them normally closed to the public -- for free tours.
