• 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.

    Slowik: Riverdale library open again after 4-month closure, but money woes and finger-pointing continue
    There's some finger-pointing and blaming going on in Riverdale about why the town's public library shut its doors for nearly four months. The mayor and some residents accuse library officials of fiscal irresponsibility. Library officials say they're doing their best and accuse the mayor of not doing enough to attract businesses that would help generate tax revenue to sustain operations.
