I am working on a project for the Rock Falls community.... a sort of transfer from type to digital age of businesses in Rock Falls. Records from the library date back to 1875. My hope is that private business owners will contribute photos and history of their businesses to me for compiling for the Rock Falls Sesquicentennial. You will see me out and about, taking storefront pictures, videos and interviewing business people. Hopefully the media will publish the website so you can submit the information online.
www.therockfallsproject.com is where you can watch the progress of the research.
The Facebook page is up and running. To see the history of the addresses on First Ave. in Rock Falls, go to the Photo Albums and expand the description on each photo. I have 1-400 blocks in there. It will be awhile until I get the website updated... so much information!! Come and like the page to see my research.
