Overview

It would be nearly impossible to travel through Northeast without passing a church. One chapter is devoted entirely to the churches—the historical role they played in the development, and the social and religious role they continue to play. Since Northeast was an early commercial and industrial area, its population was made up of immigrants who lived and worked there. A description of eight major ethnic groups-from early French, Scandinavian, and German, to later arriving Polish, Slovak, Ukrainian and Lebanese-where they settled, the churches they built ( and moved), businesses they opened, the schools they attended, and the marks they left on the area. Twenty to thirty distinct communities are identified. Another chapter is devoted to area buildings/businesses, including the Grain Belt Brewery, Edison High School, Kramarczuk's East European Deli, Hollywood Theater, and many others. Some of which are no longer in existence. For the social or sports scene, Nye's Polonaise, Mayslack's Polka Lounge, and early sports heroes are given center stage. Also a series of short vignettes about Logan Park, as recounted by those who worked or played there. And the last chapter is a series of fourteen interviews with long time residents. Each has a special charm all its own. Contains 176 pages and 150 photos.
