"Save Lemont's Old Saint Pat's School" Facebook Page

Thank all of you for participating in the effort to "Save Old St. Patrick School" Please continue to be vigilant on this matter. Updates on any progress made will be posted as they become available. 

Please email your village officials and let them know how you feel about losing this landmark. It appears that if some one wants to get rid of a historic building in town they just let it rot until they declare it unrepairable. Let them know how you feel about this. All building should be kept up to minimal building code standards so this doesn't happen.

Publication of "History and Anecdotes of Lemont"
6th Edition

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.
