Lets discuss ADVENTURELAND in Addison,IL. As a child of 6-7 I loved our visits and people I know that had been there have great memories as well. There are also some with not so great memories in the later years. What is the DEFINITIVE reason for its closing? I am well aware of the controversy related to its demise. Id like to separate fact from fiction here like adults can and will.

There is a building at the North East corner of Harding and Lemoyne It has a corner stone that says it was laid by the Masonic Fraternity in 1925.I grew up on that block and I had only known it as the NorthWest southern Baptist church, at least from the mid 70s. Can any of our dedicated pros here dig anything up on this? Maybe photos? Thanks

I couldnt say exactly where this pic was taken except that it was most certainly on the west side -North and Pulaski area. Does anyone recognize what company may be advertised on the wall? ( the picture border states Nov 1968, our family never finished a film roll all at on
