History of St. James Farm Forest Preserve in Warrenville Illinois

Here is my presentation that I provided to the Wheaton Illinois Public Library in 2021 on the History of the St. James Farm Forest Preserve in Warrenville Illinois. This is the link to the Wheaton Library YouTube station where the presentation is now archived. I also had the distinct privilege to present the progam in Freedom Hall (i.e. The Library Wing) at the Col. Robert R. McCormick Museum in Wheaton illinois in November 2019.

This is where my grandfather Frank J. Schlick worked as the Farm Manager. I will have a posting on my Grandfather in the future.
