The northwest suburban area of Chicago knows its history because of the leadership of a single family, the Paddocks. Their newspapers under the umbrella of Paddock Publications have recorded for all time the events, the stories and the heartbeat of our communities. Each member of the Paddock family past and present has taken an interest in the citizens around them, asked and written about their lives, their loves and their hopes. And, most importantly, for the sake of history the family has safeguarded their treasure trove of information, placing it on microfilm and online for all to see and use. Thank you Paddock family!
