Water Damage Restoration, Water Removal, Board Up in Skokie, IL
In 1888, the community that was to become Skokie, Illinois was incorporated as Niles Centre, its name later Americanized to Niles Center. The original name caused some confusion with the postal system, so after a campaign lasting the 1930s, residents changed the name to Skokie, a Native American word for “marsh” in a referendum passing on November 15, 1940.
Outdoor and public spaces are important to Skokie. The Skokie Park District maintains more than 240 acres of parkland and ten facilities. It is a recent recipient of the national “Gold Medal for Excellence” for parks and recreation management. The village is home to the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year. The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center opened in Skokie in 2009, paying tribute to its large Jewish population, many of whom are, or are descended from, Holocaust survivors. And then there is the Skokie Festival of Cultures, a celebration of the village’s diverse ethnic composition.
Since it began in 1991, the Skokie Festival of Cultures has become a premiere ethnic festival in Illinois. Almost half a million festival-goers take a free “Tour of the World,” featuring ethnic folk music, dance, food, arts and crafts, a merchandise bazaar, and cultural education booths and kiosks.
