Images: New owners breathing life into long-vacant Lombard Hotel building
Apr 28, 2015 5:51 AM -
The old hotel in downtown Lombard has new owners who hope to breathe some life into the 157-year-old building, which has sat mostly vacant for the last three decades. Restorations are already underway, but anyone wishing to get a glimpse inside can take a self-guided tour between noon and 3 p.m. on May 9. In cleaning up the building, the owners and Sarah Richardt, executive director of Lombard Town Centre, have found hundreds of interesting historical items, such as photographs, postcards, board games and clothing, dating back to the 1800s.
