On Saturday, September 19, 2020 the Crystal Lake Historical Society hosted its inaugural event, “We Built This City”.
Costumed actors/actresses portrayed historic building and business owners on Williams Street in Downtown Crystal Lake. Featured individuals include: John Heisler, Guy Prickett, Sarah Beatty & Zella Biggs, Margaret Gracy, Morris Cohn and Joe Scotillo. The event was free, although most attendees chose to purchase souvenir booklets for $5 each. The booklets included plenty of photos and extra information on each of the individuals being portrayed.
Remaining booklets are still available for $5 each (we’ll cover the postage).
