Discover the Hidden History of Camp Skokie

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!
