Haish mansion postcard

We've seen this image of the Haishes and their home before, but the reverse side has a written history that I find interesting.

Thanks to Cindy Dockerty for sharing this card with us; it was part of her grandparents' collection of items. Her grandmother, Alice Darnell Weeden of Sycamore, went to Northern Illinois State Normal School and once attended a special gathering at the Haish house. The origins of this particular card and its writing are unknown.

  1. Thanks Jessi. Was his housekeeper also a care taker after Sophie died? Opera House & Bank when he was 80. NITC started in the 1890’s. Dates for Haish Library & Haish Hospital? Some have called it “Glidden” probably due to Glidden School near by.
