Evergreen Park Local History
Evergreen Park Historical Commission
The Village of Evergreen Park,  its Historical Commission and the Evergreen Park Public Library are excited and busily planning for the Village's 125th Anniversary in 2018!

The events will be highlighted by the opening of the Evergreen Park Historical Display, opening on Monday, August 6 at the Evergreen Park Senior Center for a limited engagement!  
Check here for the details!

A commemorative history book will be available for purchase later this summer, as well.  And lots of audio/visual treats coming along the way!

Listen to an audio dramatization of the story of Evergreen Park's GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY, which took place on February 25, 1928.  This dramatization, acted by members of the Evergreen Park Candlelight Theatre troupe, was recorded two years ago as broadcast on ALL AROUND E.P., a limited-series Village Podcast.  Short radio play runs 15 minutes.  Clicking the link will open your default audio player.    LISTEN TO THE STORY!

Evergreen Park Public Library
Our wonderful, local library has an extensive photo collection of Evergreen Park history and are currently working with StoryCorps to document your "EP" Story on audio.  

The next recording event will take place in October.  This is an incredible opportunity for you (or a family member) to sit in a relaxed, informal session and simply tell us all about your memories of growing up in Evergreen Park.

In the meantime.. . browse through the Library's online photo exhibit;  and while you're there, visit all the wonderful programs that the Library has to offer each and every day. . .
