BEDFORD PARK, Ill. - Feb. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Chicago Ridge is sure to capture the imagination of all history lovers with tales of the Columbian Exposition, Ridgeland Avenue and 111th Street during the Roaring Twenties, the 1930s “Beer Wars”, and the many personalities that have called Chicago Ridge home over the past 100 years.

In the book, Maurer praises Chicago Ridge as “a tough but terrific little town.” Arcadia Publishing is pleased to join Maurer and the Chicago Ridge Public Library in celebrating the 100th birthday of this terrific little town!
