Looking Back to 1916-- Part 1: Hitching Posts for Horses in DeKalb

From the September 14, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1916, 100 years ago.

 "The street and alley committee in the city council has entered into a lease on the Hiland property on North Second Street adjoining the land upon which the Mennis blacksmith shop is located and the land will be cleared and made into a public hitching lot for farmers or other people who come to town with teams and wish a place to hitch them while doing their shopping or attending other affairs."
