UASC July Speaker and Marketing the UASC PDF Print E-mail

A small unremarkable ditch on the west side of Harlem just north of the Stevenson Expressway is protected by National Historic Site status in Portage Woods Forest Preserve. The short and shallow ditch is the reason a great city grew near it, and is a key link in Chicago's largely unknown birth story. Chicago owes its very existence to the location of the Chicago Portage.
Gary Mechanic is the founder of Friends of the Chicago Portage and a veteran storyteller.  Gary will present an overview of Chicago's only National Historic Site along with a short documentary on the site's significance and a brief tour of the archeological finds on the site at our next meeting on Wed., July 30th.

Please invite your friends to join us for this free presentation.
