Clear-Ridge Historical Society Leads Effort to Remember, Honor Wentworth

A piece of history in the Garfield Ridge neighborhood was
remembered and honored on Friday, December 2, as the Clear-Ridge Historical Society led an unveiling and blessing of a plaque affixed to the northwest corner of Banquets at The Mayor's Mansion, 5445 South Harlem--situated on what once was a large farm owned by Long John Wentworth, a two-term Chicago mayor and a six-term Member of Congress.

Sixteen minutes of video below. Thanks to the CRHS and everyone who attended the ceremony.
