ALBERT BUCHEIT DAY - Hodges Park, Park Ridge

02:00 PM - 06:00 PM



Please come to Hodges Park on Thursday, May 24, any time between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to help us celebrate this 102nd Anniversary of the election of the first Mayor of Park Ridge, IL

One hundred two years ago this day (May 24, 1910), our residents elected Albert Buchheit the first mayor of the new City of Park Ridge. The Park Ridge Historical Society is pleased to recreate its Buchheit Day event from the City Centennial celebration in 2010.
 
Albert Buchheit, a dentist, was 33 years old at the time of his election, which took place just one month after residents voted to adopt the City form of local government, leaving behind our days as a village 37 years after incorporating as Park Ridge, Illinois.
 
Please come to Hodges Park on Thursday, May 24, any time between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to help us celebrate this 102nd Anniversary of Dr. Buchheit’s election.
 
Take a ‘View of History’ tour from the perimeter of Hodges Park. The tour ends at the Camp Fire Girls fountain, where visitors will receive a copy of the Heritage Committee Fountain brochure, and souvenirs of our first mayoral election day 102 years ago. Photos and artifacts from Dr. Buchheit’s era will also be on display.
 
Tours begin in the Park at the corner of Butler Place and Vine Avenue.
