Palatine: Past and Present

In this new feature, you will see areas of Palatine, including what they were way back when, and what they've become.

Palatine Past and Present. Where the Music Room stands today at 26 N. Brockway Street, 112 years ago was Ike Blum's Travern. 

Ike, or Isaac Blum was a Palatine native but moved to Arlington Heights as a child. When he came back to Palatine, he bought the tavern in 1900 and ran it until 1917. 

Heading south on Brockway, there was a drug store next to Ike Blum's Tavern and a hardware store furthest south, which was owned by W.H. Brockway.
