When the Pottwattamie Indians gave up what is now Chicago's North Side to the U.S. government in 1816, it is unlikely that they foresaw the diversity that would spring up in their stead. The Historical Society is a tribute to this diversity. Mary Jo Doyle, executive director, says that the Society reflects a community where 77 languages are spoken in the local schools.
Granville Gallery is a custom framing gallery on the North Side of the city and was the recipient of the Best Picture Frame Shop by the weekly newspaper NewCity, and it deserves its accolade. The selection of frame styles here seems never ending, offering selections ranging from the contemporary to Baroque. The window displays also draw attention. One such display won an award for Best Window Decorations from the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce.
