Knights of Columbus to Build on the Lincoln Highway in DeKalb


From the March 21, 2018,  MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"Regardless of the fact that many people have thought that the Knights of Columbus in DeKalb were not intending to build their new home on Lincoln Highway when today it was learned that bids are now received for the new home of the knights.

"According to present plans, which have been accepted by the building committee of the local council that the building will be of brick construction, three stories and a basement and fitted out n every respect with every convenience."

There is a Knights of Columbus building at 1336 East Lincoln Highway built about 1920 in DeKalb which probably is this building.  I did find another Knights of Columbus building listed at 134 1/2 Lincoln Highway.
