The Lemont Area Historical Society has generously offered to share photos and accompanying information with Patch readers each week, depicting people, places and things from the village's storied past.
This week's featured photo is of the Fischbach Building, which stood at the corner of Lemont and Canal streets (next to what is now "The Vault") until the 1980s, when it was torn down for a parking lot.
“If it could have lasted another 10 years I think they would have saved it. What an awesome building it was,” said John Quinn of the Lemont Area Historical Society.
