Bolingbrook Historic Preservation Commission, First Midwest Bank restore Barber's Corners landmark
BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook's oldest historical marker now has a new look.
A collaborative effort by the Bolingbrook Historical Preservation Commission, Bolingbrook Public Works Department and First Midwest Bank, the Barber's Corners landmark – located near the intersection of Route 53 and Boughton Road – was recently refurbished and redesigned in order to increase pedestrian visibility.
The engraved placard – which details the excursion of John Barber, one of the area's original settlers – was previously situated atop a knee-high boulder in the First Midwest Bank parking lot, but now rests prominently on a 5-foot-tall post, peering out toward the bustling intersection.
