History of Archer, Unpublished for 50 Years, Now in Print, Thanks to the CRHS

A message from our friends at the Clear-Ridge Historical Society:

We are pleased to announce the completion of the printing of
our newest title, Gleanings of Archer Road, a history of Archer Avenue from its earliest days as a Native American trail to the time this book was written in 1961.

Written by Joseph Hamzik, the preeminent Brighton Park historian, who wrote over 300 historical articles for the Brighton Park LIFE newspaper, it sat unpublished for 50 years at the Chicago Historical Society. Thanks to the Hamzik family we were able to publish this important historical title.

Copies can be purchased online at
