You are here

A $450 donation from the Crystal Lake Chapter of the Polly Crandall Questers is helping restore a valuable piece of history. Pictured (from left) are Gloria Cody, who chaired the matching-grant fundraiser; MCHS Administrator Kurt Begalka, chapter President Sylvia Yount and Emily Gibson, a member of the Crystal Lake Questers' Preserve & Restore Committee. The money is restoring an index to John Brink's surveys of McHenry County. Brink, the original government surveyor of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, surveyed and walked most of McHenry County’s township and section lines. Brink's surveys, from 1849-1898. are indexed by township, subdivisions, tracings of old surveys and maps. For information about the Society's Adopt A Book program, click HERE.
