About this Article

The Maple Street Chapel is a historic American Gothic landmark built in 1870. It was Lombard's first church - it served as the village hall and its bell summoned the fire department. It is lovingly preserved by the Maple Street Chapel Preservation Society. The chapel will host a variety series of three outstanding programs for 2013.
