Join us at River Forest Public Library when Historical Society volunteer Frank FioRito presents his research on a forgotten piece of River Forest history. No trace of it remains today, but once there was a quirky subdivision tucked away in what is now the Thatcher Woods Forest Preserve. How it came to be there, what life was like for its residents, and why there’s no sign of it today will be the topic of Frank's presentation.
