About this Article
The Oakbrook Terrace Historical Society formed less than a year ago and has been making exiciting discoveries about the tiny city that was incorporated in 1958. The biggest find has been that the city-owned house where the historical society has been storing its artifacts recently was authenticated to be Sears Homart home, one of only six verified in the country. But the city has plans to tear down the house to build a new police station. Historical society members come before the City Council on Feb. 12 to see if another alternative can be reached.
