oak park river forest museum

A few blocks from my apartment building is Cicero Fire House No. 2, built in 1898 and reborn in 2017 as the Oak Park River Forest Museum.

If you’re curious about local history and those who built the cities of Oak Park and River Forest, this is a fun visit.

There is a parade of Boy Scout figures fashioned by folk artist John Hagensick.

And a painting by Edwin Reed Hemingway that was found crumpled under a house porch.
