Back during the summer I posted a story about a town that is "just down the road a bit". This small town is one of the reasons I love where we no live. Up and down the Fox River are amazing towns and small cities that are filled with history stories. I love it! From time to time we drive through these towns and take in as much as possible of their history, plus the more modern offerings they also have.
"Pretzel Palace". It is located on Main Street in West Dundee along a stretch of the road that is almost entirely lined with "turn of the century" homes.
This tiny little house dates back to 1848. It was built 100 years before I was born. This is the historical marker that sits in front of the home. This house was stop for the "underground railroad" during the Civil War.
