From 1936, this old book shows all the houses and businesses in Chillicothe, Illinois, a town only three miles north of the little town of Rome where I grew up. I went to high school and later lived in Chillicothe when I was first married. We were transferred to Iowa from there in 1956, but returned in 1984 after my husband retired and lived there another 8 years. So Chillicothe is dear to my heart and this old book is fun for me to look through. I thought I might do posts weekly with some of the pictures that are there.
This old building is still there and is right on the corner across from the city park.
