Remembering Marshall Field’s

On Tuesday, October 9th at 7:00 p.m. Leslie Goddard will present “Remembering Marshall Field’s” at the Warrenville Public Library.  For more than 150 years, Marshall Field and Co. reigned as Chicago’s leading department store.  Leslie Goddard’s lavishly illustrated talk traces the store’s history from its beginning as a dry goods store in 1852 into a world-class fashion and service trendsetter.  Photographs, ads, postcards and memorabilia trace the store’s cherished traditions – the Walnut Room Christmas tree, the State Street store’s legendary window displays, and, of course, Frango Mints.  Leslie’s book Remembering Marshall Field’s, will be available for sale after the presentation.  The Historical Society is sponsoring refreshments at this event starting at 6:30 p.m.  Contact the Library at 630-393-1171 to make a reservation to attend this program.
