Thurs., Oct. 6th from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Located 33 miles north of Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan, North Chicago provides a stark contrast to the more affluent communities along the North Shore. Once a vibrant blue collar town with heavy manufacturing roots, North Chicago has struggled as its manufacturing base dwindled and population declined.
