Rogers Park / West Ridge Historical Society

Rogers Park West Ridge Historical Society
7344 N Western Avenue Chicago, IL 60645
(773) 764-4078

This is the place to go for information on Rogers Park's past.

I researched Ludwig Sussman, former Rogers Park leader who ran the Adelphi Theater, fed the homeless during the Great Depression, and raised money from Adelphi Theater profits to send the troops of World War II care packages. Let's see our current Rogers Park "leaders" do so much!

The Rogers Park / West Ridge Historical Society has a large collection of rare and historic photos that are absolutely priceless. They have so many photos, in fact, that they have an annual get-together to invite the community to sort and identify these many treasures.
