Looking Back to 1941: The New DeKalb-Sycamore Road

From the December 28, 2016, MidWeek (Dekalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"Now that the 'closed' signs have been removed from both ends of the new DeKalb-Sycamore road some details of changes that have come to pass along its right of way are noticeable.

"Many have not noted that fact that a gateway is missing at Hopkins Park.  The wide central entrance to DeKalb's park has been done away with.  The gateway pillars have been removed and a curbing built across the former approach.

"Replacing the center entrance are two entrances, one at the north and the other at the south ends of the park."
