Downtown Downers Grove photo history tour returns

DOWNERS GROVE – The Downers Grove Historical Society and the Downers Grove Park District Museum are teaming up to sponsor the return of the Downtown Photo Tour in August.

Residents and visitors will have the pleasure of taking a walk through the downtown area where merchants will display historic photos in their stores.

"Photos which will help viewers of the photos realize that, far beyond Metra, Downers Grove is very much a railroad town," stated a press release.

Inside their shops, merchants will have photo cards to share. These photo cards will have one of four historic mystery photos of Downers Grove on the front and dates of upcoming Historical Society events on the reverse. Answers to the mystery photo locations will be found on the Historical Society’s web-site downersgrovehistory.org.

The tour will be available throughout the month of August both north and south of the BNSF tracks and east and west of Main Street.

A pamphlet listing the names of participating merchants will be found at the Tivoli Theater and Bowling Alley, 5021 Highland Ave., Downers Grove Coldwell Banker Realtor, 5114 Main St., and the Downers Grove Downtown Management Corp. office, 933A Curtiss St.
