Join Forgotten Chicago’s Patrick Steffes for an exploration of Chicago’s Shoreline Motels in a presentation of rare and little-seen images.

Edgewater once had three of these motels located on or near the intersection of Sheridan Road and Foster Avenue, taking advantage of the proximity to the legendary Edgewater Beach Hotel. Join us for a unique trip down memory lane; more information on these motels can be found at

For those of you who couldn’t get into the standing room only April program, we hope you will be able to make this encore presentation.

This will be our first program at the new Edgewater Library. You will like it.
