Publication of "History and Anecdotes of Lemont"
The story of Lemont is unique, due not only to its history, but to the strength, vitality, and character of its people. History and Anecdotes of Lemont, 6th Edition tells part of that story by presenting a collection of articles that describe historical events and stories passed down through generations. The book is now available for $9.95 at Lemont Historical Society, Smokey Row Antiques, or online at Amazon & Kindle. The art works on the book's cover are murals located throughout the village. All represent projects supported by the community and depict historic events for which Lemont is known. The murals, along with additional works of public art, are described in detail in the book. For additional information, please contact the Historical Society at (630) 257-2972 or
