Join the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Historical Society to celebrate the long history of Scottish residents in Lake Forest-Lake Bluff who were corporate leaders and brought the game of golf to Lake Forest. In collaboration with the Illinois St. Andrew Society, the encore showing of the film, The Scots of Lake Forest, is being presented. The hour-long program touches on many of the almost 1,000 native born Scots and their children who helped establish Lake Forest. Learn about the Scots who founded Carson, Pirie and Scott and ran Quaker Oats and Zenith Corporation. In addition, hardworking Scots who paved the streets, built the schools, dug the sewers and ran many of the original stores in town will be featured. Over 2,000 old photographs were collected for this project from many private collections and the Historical Society’s photograph collection. This showing takes place in the the brand new John & Nancy Hughes Theater. Reservations requested, call or visit the website.
