|Camp Skokie Valley Headquarters from the Winnetka Historical Society|
This Sunday, Beverly Dawson will present the hidden history of Camp Skokie at the Glenview History Center. Camp Skokie Valley began as a tent camp for workers from the CCC and eventually housed the 740th Military Police Battalion. During the latter years of WWII, Camp Skokie became a German POW camp.
The program begins at 2 PM in the Hibbard Library and a donation of $5 is suggested. Afterwards you are welcome to tour the Victorian farmhouse!
