Welcome to the North Lawndale Sesquicentennial Committee’s (NLSC) website.

As we continue to build out the site, please check back often for the latest news on North Lawndale’s 2019 community wide celebration of its 150th birthday. During our celebration, among other things, we will be burying a 50-year time capsule.

When the capsule is opened in 2069, during North Lawndale’s 200th birthday celebration, they’ll learn about us.

How long has your family, business, or house of worship been in North Lawndale? Does it go back to 1869, or just last month? Whether you live or work here now, or once did, 2069 will want to know.

In the coming days, we will be posting instructions on how you can upload your video stories and pictures that will not be seen for 50 years!

This is a community project, your project. Let’s make it something to remember.

The Power of Community
