We have been graciously been invited back to Marktown to help celebrate the Marktown Centennial Celebration in Southeast Chicago, Indiana. We will participate in a Marktown Historic District walking tour hosted by Marktown’s preservationist and resident Paul Myers, plus various additional points of interest along the way and on the return trip such as The Ore Wall, Steelworkers Park, Wolf Lake, The Republic Steel and Memorial Day Massacre Site and Sculpture. Oh yeah did I mention we will search for a hidden Pullman Car?
