Ford School Landmark Nomination Moves Forward
Woodstock, IL — In September of 2017, a representative of the Village of Lake in the Hills nominated The Ford School to be designated as a historic landmark. In support of the application, the Village submitted a record showing the history and development of the property. In addition, in mid-May, McHenry County Commissioners met with Bob Spooner of the Lake in the Hills Historical Society, who gave a tour of the site.
The McHenry County Historic Preservation Commission voted in July to recommend to the County Board that the site be designated a local historic landmark. The full County Board reviewed the proposed landmark ordinance at its August 20th meeting, and will vote on the ordinance at the September 17th meeting.
