Looking Back to 1941: The Wet and Dry in Sycamore Township

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"Sycamore Township is almost dry.  There is but one tavern left in the township but that is not to be confused with the moisture inside the city limits.  Sycamore Township had two taverns until a few weeks ago when one voluntarily closed.

"The Ace of  Clubs, a place operated under one title or another and by several different proprietors since repeal has closed its doors.  The place was located on Route 23 on the northern edge of Sycamore's city limits.

"Reuben Nelson continues to operate Coast Inn, a tavern located on Route 64 on the west edge of the township."

Wet in Sycamore, Mostly Dry in Sycamore Township.  Moisture Inside City Limits. --Cooter
