There’s a little know story about one of Chicago’s favorite parks. It’s a story that is still part of, more specifically just below the surface of Lincoln Park. Earlier this week with a full moon illuminating the sky The Chicago History Museum hosted a walking tour of the park and pulled back the curtain on the story of its past. First Light host Brian O’Keefe took the tour.
In any discussion of history, there are common themes that emerge. Whether it’s the global events preceding World War I, or stories of the Boston Tea-Party in an American History class. Maybe more interesting than those frequently shared historical events are the little known sometimes forgotten stories from our collective past. That’s the ground Richard Linberg hopes to cover with his upcoming book “Tales of Forgotten Chicago.” First Light host Brian O’Keefe talked about the project with Lindberg.
