• 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.

Yesterday the kids next door was throwing rocks up on my porch and the dog has poop in my yard I called the police and they said they couldn't do anything cause the mother wasn't there the kids be home alone . They were outside this morning around 12:00 with a stick banging on the garbage cans .Garbage on both sides of the house with their aggressive dog running around between the houses . I talked to the Alderman and so far nothing has been done living next door to a nightmare and Everytime we come out of the house her son is giving my family the birdie finger.

  • If the kids are13years old and under its against the law for them to be home alone. Contact Lisa Madigan's office for further info on whom to contact and perhaps light a fire under the Dept of DCFS. Can't see why police can't get involved. It's a safety issue. Pure and Simple. Good luck.

  • Jesica Ramos Just one of the neighbors

    kids are arrested for crimes all the time same goes for harassment maybe you need to harass the police with phone calls until they do something.

It's a hot mess over here I keep telling my next door neighbor about her kids coming over here swing on the lift I have in fort of my house and how the dog keeps jumping at me and my kids she's saying I'm harassing her they throw garbage all over my yard when they get out of the car the pit bull is going crazy he run and broke my window she said she's not paying for nothing she on section 8 every time I talk to her she keeps saying not my kids the kids be out side every time she leaves doing everything throwing rocks every where I wish her and her kids go back to the west side where they come from

  • Yes you can call Section 8 to report this behaviour. Section 8 will contact the tenant and the owner. If the Alderman's office becomes involved it is a more serious step so the tenant should receive a warning beforehand.

    Absolutely LaSalle Neighbor
    There are too many people on the waiting list for Section 8. If that neighbor can't get it right Section 8 will find another family that can. It's a long process but worth fighting for.
